What is Type 1 diabetes? | Diabetes UK

Type 1 diabetes affects 10% of people with diabetes in the UK. It is a serious, lifelong condition where your blood glucose level is too high because your body can't make a hormone called insulin. The symptoms of Type 1 diabetes include feeling very tired, needing to wee a lot, feeling extremely thirsty and losing weight. These symptoms can come on very quickly, so if you have any of these symptoms see a doctor as soon as possible. For more information about Type 1 diabetes go to our website: https://diabetes.org.uk/
