What You Should Know About Type 1 Diabetes:find articles:"Type 1 diabetes is sometimes called juvenile diabetes, or insulin-dependent diabetes. It means that your body can't make insulin. Insulin helps your body use the sugar it makes from the food you eat. Your body uses this sugar for energy. We need insulin to live. Without insulin, your blood sugar level goes up, you get thirsty and you urinate a lot. "

Type 1 Diabetes:diabetes.org:"Type 1 diabetes is usually diagnosed in children and young adults and was previously known as juvenile diabetes. In type 1 diabetes, the body does not produce insulin. Insulin is necessary for the body to be able to use sugar. Sugar is the basic fuel for the cells in the body, and insulin takes the sugar from the blood into the cells. When sugar builds up in the blood instead of going into cells, it can cause two problems"
http://www.diabetes.org/main/application/commercewf?origin=*.jsp&event=link(C)

comprehensive information about type 1 diabetes:umm.edu:"Type 1 diabetes tends to run in families. Brothers and sisters of children with type 1 diabetes have about a 10 percent chance of developing the disease by age 50. Peak incidence occurs during puberty, around 10 to 12 years of age in girls, and 12 to 14 years of age in boys. The identical twin of a person with type 1 diabetes has a 25 to 50 percent chance of developing type 1 diabetes"
http://www.umm.edu/diabetes-info/type1.htm

There are several types of diabetes:ivillagehealth:"In Type 1 (insulin-dependent) diabetes, the pancreas makes little or no insulin because the insulin-producing beta cells have been destroyed. Type 1 diabetes is less common than Type 2 diabetes, accounting for about five to 10 percent of diabetes cases. It typically develops during childhood or young adulthood. Though formerly known as "juvenile diabetes," the disorder can appear at any age."
http://www.ivillagehealth.com/library/nwh/content/0,4482,215912_227056,00.html

Type 1 and 2 diabetes/ difference in symptoms:lillydiabetes.com:"The symptoms of type 1 diabetes usually come on suddenly. They include: increased thirst increased urination increased hunger sudden weight loss feeling very tired In its early stages, type 2 diabetes often has no symptoms. When symptoms do occur, they may come on gradually and be very subtle. They include: feeling tired dry, itchy skin numbness or tingling in hands or feet frequent infections increased urination blurred vision problems with sexual function slow healing of cuts or sores increased hunger and thirst"
http://www.lillydiabetes.com/Education/DiabetesInformation.cfm

Cause of type-I diabetes found, researchers say:cnn.com:"Researchers said Monday they had confirmed that type-I diabetes is triggered by the body's immune system turning on delicate cells, and they said they had found the cause. The findings could lead to a type of vaccine against the disease that affects more than 1 million Americans, said Susan Wong and colleagues at Yale University School of Medicine."
http://www.cnn.com/HEALTH/9908/30/health.diabetes.reut/index.html

What increases your risk:Healthwise Inc.:"Having a family history of type 1 diabetes. People who have an immediate relative (mother, father, brother, or sister) with type 1 diabetes have a 1 in 20 chance of developing the disease. If a father, brother, or sister has type 1 diabetes, other children have a 6% risk of developing the disease. If the mother has type 1 diabetes, the children have a 2% to 3% risk of developing the disease. If an identical twin has type 1 diabetes, the other twin has a 25% to 50% chance of developing the disease. The earlier type 1 diabetes develops in a relative, the greater the risk for family members."
http://www.behavemed.com/kbase/topic/major/hw34303/riskfact.htm

How is type 1 diabetes managed?:healthatoz:"In type 1 diabetes, the pancreas is unable to produce the insulin that is required to regulate blood glucose levels. For this reason, all people with type 1 diabetes must inject insulin one or more times per day to keep their blood glucose levels normal. (Insulin is ineffective when swallowed because the enzymes of the digestive tract destroy it before it gets into the bloodstream). Insulin can be injected in a variety of ways: by repeated injections under the skin (called subcutaneous injection) using pens or syringes, or through a pump, which is implanted under the skin to provide a continuous infusion of insulin."
http://www.healthatoz.com/atoz/diabetes1/diatype.html

Type 1 diabetes and Addison's disease:addisons-diabetes:"Having Addison's disease in conjunction with type I diabetes presents a significant additional challenge to maintaining normal blood sugar levels. The adrenal gland plays an important role in controlling blood sugar. The adrenal gland produces a glucocorticoid hormone, cortisol, which causes the liver to release internal stores of glucose and reduce glucose uptake in peripheral cells when blood sugars drop below normal levels. The goal is to counteract the drop in blood sugar. Addison's patients usually take hydrocortisone to replace the cortisol that's not produced by their adrenal gland."
http://addisons-diabetes.gkznet.com/

Type 1 Diabetes and Sports Participation:The physician and sportsmedicine:"Athletes with diabetes require intensive diabetes management to balance insulin, carbohydrate intake, and the effects of exercise. Effective care of active patients who have diabetes starts with a targeted preparticipation exam. Decreasing the insulin dosage may be necessary for heavier exercise programs if carbohydrate supplementation alone is insufficient. The documented risk for either hypoglycemia or ketoacidosis requires careful planning for training or competition. Analysis of 'high-risk' activities is essential to determine which may need to be modified, diminished, or restricted."
http://www.physsportsmed.com/issues/2000/12_00/draznin.htm

Gastroparesis in type 1 diabetes:1up health:"Gastroparesis is a disorder in which the stomach takes too long to empty its contents. Gastroparesis is most often a complication of type 1 diabetes. At least 20 percent of people with type 1 diabetes develop gastroparesis. It also occurs in people with type 2 diabetes, although less often. Gastroparesis happens when nerves to the stomach are damaged or stop working. The vagus nerve controls the movement of food through the digestive tract. If the vagus nerve is damaged, the muscles of the stomach and intestines do not work normally, and the movement of food is slowed or stopped."
