Autoimmune Diabetes is commonly known as Type 1 Diabetes. One develops type 1 diabetes when the body's immune system attacks beta cells in the pancreas. These beta cells are responsible for producing insulin. In the absence of insulin, glucose will stay in the blood for long periods of time which can cause severe damage to organs. Scientists are not sure what causes autoimmune diabetes, yet genetic, environmental, and autoimmune components play a role. There is no cure for autoimmune diabetes but symptoms can be regulated through supplementing insulin and monitoring sugar levels in the blood. Anyone is at risk for type 1 diabetes but those with a family history or exposed to certain environmental influences pose greater risk of development.
