People with type 1 diabetes
must take insulin, which is the hormone they lack.You will have to take injectable insulin daily.If you find it cumbersome or tough to take injection insulin,you can use an insulin pump
,a device worn outside the body that pumps insulin through a flexible tube to a small needle inserted under the skin. The pump can be set to give small amounts of short-acting insulin continuously through the day and additional doses before meals.However this is a very expensive proposition.
Treatment for type 1 diabetes is a lifelong commitment to..
Exercising regularly and maintaining a healthy weight
Eating healthy foods
Monitoring blood sugar
The only oral medication that may help a type 1 diabetic is Metformin
, as it improves insulin sensitivity, regulates the liver's output of glucose
and slows absorption of glucose.
At the moment there is no permanent cure of diabetes type 1.
