Type 1 Diabetes

We hear a lot about obesity and its link to diabetes - an inability of the pancreas to regulate glucose levels in the blood. But Type 1 Diabetes is actually a genetic disease that first shows up in childhood, unrelated to weight or fitness level. It's often called juvenile diabetes, but its effect lasts a lifetime.
