Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus (T1DM) is a disease caused by the inability of the body to produce insulin. As a result of the human defenses against autoimmune disorders, insulin producing cells in the body are identified as foreign and therefore targeted by immune cells for destruction. Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas, which is responsible for regulating blood glucose levels through the regulation of glucose uptake from blood into storage cells. High levels of blood glucose can result in damage of organs such as the kidney, liver, pancreas and brain. The main symptoms of diabetes include weight loss, polynuria and presence of sugar in urine. It is characteristic of T1DM for symptoms to develop quickly especially in young people.
