#DiabetesAwarenessMonth – Fact 1

Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) is an Autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin, a hormone that enables people to get energy from food. It occurs when the body’s immune system attacks and destroys the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas, called beta cells.

Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) is a metabolic disorder in which the body still produces insulin but becomes insulin resistant.
