Type 1 diabetes is caused by an autoimmune condition where the body attacks and destroys cells in the pancreas that produce insulin. Insulin is necessary to process glucose from food. The disease progresses in stages, with each stage marked by specific criteria.
*Autoantibodies are markers that indicate the early stages of this autoimmune process.
Abnormal blood glucose levelsPreventive treatment eligible (Ages 8+)
*Abnormal blood glucose levels Symptoms like diabetic ketoacidosis.
To diagnose type 1 diabetes, a blood or saliva test is performed to check for the presence of these autoantibodies. This helps to determine if someone is in the early stages of the disease.
