Type 1 Diabetes

Trial Overview

Our current Type I diabetes trial is for individuals taking long acting and short acting insulin for the management of their diabetes. This study has a total of 8 on site visits and 5 phone visits over a 13 month period. You are compensated for your time and are provided thousands of dollars in medical care free of charge. There are no overnight visits and we offer flexibility in scheduling your clinic appointments.


Definition

Type 1 diabetes is a chronic condition in which the pancreas produces little or no insulin.

Description

In type 1 diabetes, the cells in the pancreas that make insulin are destroyed. Insulin is a hormone that helps to lower blood sugar by allowing sugar, called glucose, to pass from the blood into the cells. When there is no insulin, glucose builds up in the blood and can reach dangerous levels. To avoid life-threatening complications, people with type 1 diabetes must take insulin for their entire lives.

Causes and Symptoms

The exact cause of type 1 diabetes is unknown. Genetics may play a role in this process, as well as something environmental, like a virus, that tells your immune system to go after your pancreas.

Symptoms can come on quickly and include:

• Increased thirst
• Extreme hunger
• Nausea and vomiting
• Pain in your belly
• Frequent urination
• Unexplained weight loss
• Fatigue and weakness
• Blurred vision
• In females, a vaginal yeast infection
