Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA) is a serious condition in which an insulin-deprived body seeks energy from stored fat. Ketones are caused by the breakdown of fat when there isn’t enough insulin to allow the glucose (sugar) into your cells for energy. When ketones build up, the result is acidosis (too much acid in the blood). If not treated, this can lead to death. More: https://www.jdrf.org/t1d-resources/about/symptoms/ketoacidosis/

Insulin helps regulate blood-sugar levels throughout the day and night, a key to managing diabetes. People with type 1 diabetes (T1D) rely on insulin therapy to help manage their blood-glucose levels. While insulin therapy keeps people with T1D alive, it is not a cure, nor does it prevent the possibility of T1D’s serious side effects. Learn more: https://www.jdrf.org/t1d-resources/about/insulin/

Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease in which insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas are mistakenly destroyed by the body’s immune system. People with T1D are dependent on injected or pumped insulin to survive. Its causes are not fully known, and there is currently no cure. T1D seems to have a genetic component and can be diagnosed early in life but also in adulthood. Learn more: https://www.jdrf.org/t1d-resources/about/

🌐The T1D Index measures how many people live with the condition, the healthy years of life it takes from people living with type 1 diabetes (T1D), and what can be done to reduce its impact. Type 1 diabetes has never before been measured in this way or at this scale. 🔗https://www.t1dindex.org/ // P.S. (if you see a command with a 🌐next to it – it’s from the T1D Index!)
Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is a metabolic disorder in which a person’s body still produces insulin but is unable to use it effectively. T2D is often diagnosed later in life and can be due to genetic predisposition or behavior. It can often be managed with diet and exercise or medication. More serious cases may require insulin therapy. Learn more: https://www.jdrf.org/t1d-resources/about/

Time-in-range (TIR) is a measurement that tells you what percentage of the day your blood sugars are in your goal range. While using a CGM, you often work with your healthcare team to set “low” and “high” alarms that determine the appropriate goal range for your blood sugar levels.
