Type 1 Diabetes - Dubai Endocrinology Clinic


Type 1 diabetes:

Type 1 diabetes is a chronic autoimmune disorder. The immune system will attack and destroy the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas, leading to a lack of insulin in the blood. Insulin hormone is needed to lower and control blood sugar (glucose) levels, hence blood sugar levels are elevated in type 1 diabetics. It can affect all ages however it develops early in life during childhood or adolescence. Unlike type 2 diabetes, type 1 cannot be prevented and is not associated with obesity or physical inactivity.

Treatment of Type 1 diabetes

Unfortunately, there is no cure for type 1 Diabetes. Instead, treatment aims to control your blood glucose levels within the normal range as much as possible. This is commonly achieved through insulin pumps, a healthy diet, and lifestyle changes. Diabetics are also given a continuous glucose monitor (CGM) to track and warn against very high or very low glucose levels which can be serious.

DRHC's approach to Type 1 Diabetes involves comprehensive management. From precise insulin dosing to dietary guidance and continuous glucose monitoring, patients receive the best care that empowers them to take control of their condition.
