In 2016 | Expecting to combat Type-1 Diabetes (used to be called juvenile Diabetes)

Type -1 diabetes is the second most common chronic disease in children in India. There are one million children with diabetes in India.(may be more)

One author called them “step children”. Twelve thousand children die each year because of diabetes. They don’t need to.

The real cause of Type-1 diabetes is elusive, but we do have few theories:

  1. Genetic susceptibility.
  2. Autoimmunity
  3. Environmental trigger
  4. Entero viruses

Hence the research for the cause of type-1 diabetes is of paramount importance.

In spite of the efforts of many organizations, the management of these children is less than satisfactory.
