What is type 1 diabetes?Dictionary Term: A disorder of themetabolism causing excessive thirstand the production of large amountsof urine.Type 1 diabetes is when your pancreascan no longer produce insulin. Whenwe ingest glucose (sugar) it enters ourbloodstream, but this is not possiblewithout insulin.Insulin makes it possible for the cells totake in glucose. Without insulin ourbodies can not receive energy and thebody doesn’t grow, because theglucose can never enter ourbloodstream. It is a metabolic disorderbecause it has to do with our digestivesystem and how it breaks down ournutrients, and this is how it relates toDiabetes.
Diabetes Free! People without diabetes have a functioning pancreas. This means that the pancreas is giving the right amount of insulin for the amount of food a person might eat. This means the body’s blood sugar level is decreasing by itself. This happens every time a person without diabetes eats.

How to prevent type 1 diabetes?There is no way to prevent type 1 diabetes, little is known about thedisorder. What is known is that some factors that cause it aregenetic and can be because of an exposure to a virus.Doctors are unable to tell who will have it and who will not, but if afamily member (parents or siblings) have it, the chances areincreased for that entire family.A mother and a father both give 23 chromosomes to their baby.From this we have the X and Y chromosome and the 23rdchromosome from dad determines the sex of the baby. If the y ispresent the baby is a boy. The Y chromosome gives characteristics,and so does the inactive type 1 diabetic gene. If one of the genesgiven to the baby is the gene that carries the type 1 diabetesdisorder the child can grow up and be diabetic or the child may not.What this mean is that like the Y gives male traits to the baby, thetype 1 diabetic gene can determine traits of the baby if the gene isactive.
