Type 1 Diabetes

Type I Diabetes Mellitus - Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus (IDDM)

Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a metabolic disorder characterised by chronic hyperglycemia, with disturbances of carbohydrate, fat, and protein metabolism resulting from defects in insulin secretion, action or both. Type 1A DM is the major requiring exogenous insulin for survival and preventing ketosis as a consequence of β-cell destruction and also the principal autoimmune DM form because of a cellular-mediated, organ specific, progressive β-cell destruction.  Autoimmune isdescribed by the presence of more than one of the specific autoantibodies; anti-GAD65, anti-insulin, anti-IA-2.
