Type 1 diabetes symptoms

Increased thirst and frequent urination are the main symptoms of type 1 diabetes. Finger-stick glucose should be measured urgently.

The weight loss, tiredness, blurred vision, nausea and vomiting appear only later during the diabetes onset.

Type 1 diabetes causes

Environmental factors play the main role in the development of type 1 diabetes-specific autoimmunity.

T1DM – diabetic ketoacidosis

A relatively small amount of insulin is sufficient to keep the production of ketone bodies in the liver blocked. Ketoacidosis occurs when this minimum amount of insulin is no longer available. You can almost always avoid the ketoacidosis at the onset of diabetes!
