Diabetes Mellitus type 1 (DM1), previously referred to as insulin-dependent diabetes or juvenile diabetes, is a chronic condition that occurs when the pancreas produces little or no insulin due to autoimmune destruction of beta cells in the pancreas (ADA, 2018). Katsarou et al. (2017) defines insulin as the hormone that allows the passage of sugar (glucose) into the cells for energy production. DM1 is more prevalent in children and adolescents but can also develop in adults.

Symptoms include sudden onset of polyuria, polydipsia, polyphagia,  bed-wetting in children who did not previously wet bed during the night, unexplained weight loss, irritability and other mood variations, fatigue and weakness, and blurred vision (Zaccardi, Webb, Yates, & Davies, 2016)…..Please click the Paypal icon below to purchase full solution for only $10
