Did you know: T1D is an autoimmune disease that comes on suddenly and strikes both children and adults at any age. T1D has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle. Those living with T1D must carefully balance insulin doses with eating and daily activities throughout the day and night. Those living with T1D must test their blood sugar by pricking their fingers for blood six or more times a day.
