Description: This animation illustrates how insulin is normally produced in the body and how its production is destroyed in type 1 diabetes. Approximately 25 million people worldwide, many of them children, suffer from this disease. There is currently no cure for diabetes and those affected with this disease must endure daily insulin injections for the duration of their lives. It is an autoimmune disease with a genetic factor, possibly triggered by a virus or other infection. It isnot caused by poor diet and lifestyle which are the main causes of type 2 diabetes.
