Diabetes is a chronic, debilitating disease affecting every organ system. There are two major types of diabetes: Type 1 diabetes (an autoimmune disease also known as juvenile diabetes) and Type 2 diabetes metabolic disorder also known as adult onset diabetes). Type 1 (juvenile) diabetes strikes children suddenly, makes them dependent on injected or pumped insulin for life, and carries the constant threat of devastating complications. While diagnosis most often occurs in childhood and adolescence, it can and does strike adults as well.
For more information on juvenile diabetes and how you can become involved, please visit jdrf.org.
