This type 1 diabetes usually strikes before the age of thirty years, but could be diagnosed at any age if one is vigilant for the signs of juvenile diabetes.
In some people, scientists say, that an autoimmune disease of the insulin-producing beta cells of the pancreas causes diabetes. They believe that a virus triggers the immune system to attack the beta cells in the pancreas and permanently destroy them. So, then, what is juvenile diabetes symptomatic off? Many say, a shock to the system is enough reasonable doubt to throw a person onto diabetes. Can a simple viral trigger be the cause?
Often juvenile diabetes is a genetic (inherited) disease which can be life threatening but can be easily diagnosed in childhood.
Where and why it originates is not wholly known, there are different and varied theories but the effect is the same and insulin injections are required to be administered frequently.
This is commonly known as “juvenile diabetes” or “insulin-dependent”; medically termed as Type 1 Diabetes. This can be easily diagnosed in childhood. They have to inject insulin into their bodies, daily to prevent damage internal organs/blood vessels and the development of “ketoacidosis” which can be life-threatening.
