Insulin Production and Type 1 Diabetes

Insulin Production and Type 1 Diabetes

 

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.
