Juvenile Diabetes - Facts 

  • Juvenile Diabetes also known as  type 1 diabetes (T1D) is a disease in which, the insulin producing β cell of the pancreas are destroyed because of autoimmunity. Hence the body does not produce insulin or produces very little insulin. T1D is usually diagnosed in children and young adults.
  • There is no cure of this disease and is not preventable. The disease has to be controlled with supplemental insulin, lifelong.
  • Untreated diabetes type 1 can lead to severe complications of heart, eye and nerves and may also be fatal.

Under this project we  support such poor patients of type-1 diabetes for adequate medication, periodic investigation and educating them for self monitoring.

  • The center is unique to provide free insulin, insulin pen, cartridge and needle to all poor patients  at token charges, since insulin has to be taken twice/ thrice  a day.
  • Besides that, we  give self monitoring blood glucose (SMBG) kit to each patient so that the patient can himself check blood sugar level.
