There is No cure for type one diabetes as of 2009 but you can get treated for it.

That treatment is based on a combination of diet and weight control,physical exercise,and injected insulin to reduce blood sugar levels and home monitoring of blood glucose levels. Home management is hard and requires a lot of effort from the patient to work with the doctor for treatment goals At the minimum, patients need to learn how to balance their calorie intake, physical activity and insulin doses throughout the day.This balance requires patient to learn how food physical activity,and insulin affect their individual blood glucose levels.

What you can expect to happen from Type 1 Diabetes.

Type one diabetes is associated with high morbidity and premature mortality due to complications even though the statistics have improved since the 1950’s. one person in five diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 1950’s one of them died within 20 years after the diagnosis, one in three died within 25 years. As of 2008, however, 3.5 percent die within 20 years , 7 percent within 25 years and only 10 percent develop kidney failure. About 48,000 diabetics develop end stage kidney disease each year, the end result of a condition called diabetic nephropathy. Diabetic nephropathy is a complication from type 1 and 2 diabetes caused by damage to the kidney’s delicate filtering system.

My Personal Take from this Project.

My Personal Statement from this Research is that everyone should know about type 1 diabetes because it is very common in teens 18 and younger and I wanted to tell people to start eating healthier and to start exercising more. America is the fattest country in the world. Americans are very Lazy and need help to get fit and stay healthy and I think that everyone can do that if we all know especially kids because kids get type 1 diabetes a lot easier than adults can get type 2 diabetes.
