About Type 1 Diabetes and JDRF
Type 1 Diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas loses the ability to produce insulin—a hormone that turns food into energy. The disease strikes both children and adults suddenly and is not caused by diet or lifestyle. T1D requires constant blood-glucose testing through painful finger pricks, and a constant supply of insulin by injection or pump, just to stay alive.
JDRF is the largest non-government funder of T1D research.Add to my calendar
