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.
