Type 1

Type 1 diabetes, which affects around 10% of people with diabetes, is an autoimmune condition (where the body’s immune system attacks itself) that destroys insulin-producing cells. As a result, glucose is raised in the blood.

No one is sure why Type 1 diabetes occurs, but changing your lifestyle doesn’t lower your risk of having this condition.
