Type 1 Takedown

THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN TYPE 1 AND TYPE 2 DIABETES
Type 1 Diabetes is an autoimmune disorder that occurs when a person’s pancreas stops
producing insulin, the hormone that controls blood-sugar levels.
“There is nothing anyone can do to prevent T1D. Presently, there is no known cure.”
- Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation
HOW IS T1D MANAGED?
Type 1 Diabetes is treated with synthetic insulin. Diabetics constantly monitor their blood sugar
either with finger sticks or continuous glucose monitoring systems. Insulin can be delivered in
several ways, including orally, via syringes, insulin pens and insulin pumps.
Continuous glucose monitors typically need to be replaced every 10-14 days. Insulin pumps
have a three-day lifespan.
STATISTICS
From JDRF
- 1.6 million Americans are living with T1D with another 64,000 diagnosed each year
- Type 1 accounts for roughly 5% of the US diabetic population
- The US experiences $16 BILLION in T1D-associated healthcare expenditures and lost
income annually
- Less than one-third of people with T1D in the US are consistently achieving targeted
blood-glucose levels
From the Health Journal
- T1D is the second most common chronic illness in children, behind asthma
- Often called juvenile diabetes, T1D can be diagnosed at any age but half of patients
are diagnosed before 18.

Jing Luo, MD – Univ. of Pittsburgh Center for Pharmaceutical Policy
- “About 1 in 4 patients with diabetes report underusing insulin because of financial
pressure.”
Washington Post
- Insulin Prices have jumped radically over time. Fast acting insulin Novolog went for
$40 in 2001. It now sells for $289. Humalog leapt from $21 to $275 from 1996 to
2019.
