Insulin is a hormone that helps our body to use glucose from the food that we eat and convert it to energy units. In type 1 diabetes, the body is unable to produce insulin. Hence, the person must take insulin injections every day. This used to be called – juvenile-onset or insulin-dependent diabetes as it is commonly seen in children & young adults. However, it can occur at any age.
