Type 1 diabetes affects 10% of people with diabetes in the UK. It is a serious, lifelong condition where your blood glucose level is too high because your body can’t make a hormone called insulin.
The symptoms of type 1 diabetes include feeling very tired, needing to wee a lot, feeling extremely thirsty and losing weight. These symptoms can come on very quickly, so if you have any of these symptoms see a doctor as soon as possible.

This 3D animation explains the causes, symptoms and treatment of Type 1 Diabetes. Type 1 Diabetes is a condition in which your pancreas does not produce insulin, a hormone your body needs to maintain proper blood sugar levels. Without insulin, glucose cannot get into your cells, so they are starved for the calories they should be receiving from glucose. In addition, the glucose level builds up in your bloodstream, resulting in a condition called hyperglycemia. If you have Type I diabetes, your goal is to keep your blood glucose within a normal range. This is done through a combination of proper insulin replacement, monitoring your blood glucose and, just as importantly, eating a healthy diet and getting regular exercise.
