Overview of Diabetes Mellitus Type I
Type I Diabetes Mellitus is sometimes called juvenile onset diabetes because the new onset peaks at about age 12. The onset is rapid and is generally thought to be due to an autoimmune process triggered by some unidentified infection. The autoimmune process destroys the pancreatic tissue that produces insulin, thereby requiring lifelong insulin supplementation.
A related type of diabetes is sometimes called Type 1.5, LADA, or Latent Autoimmune Diabetes of Adults.
