What happens if type 1 diabetes is untreated?
What’s the Difference Between Untreated Type 1 Diabetes and Untreated Type 2 Diabetes? – Type 1 diabetes is when your pancreas doesn’t produce any insulin at all. If left untreated, it can cause atherosclerosis (narrowing of blood vessels), heart disease, stroke, and eye and kidney diseases.
Does type 1 diabetes make you feel sick?
Having type 1 diabetes does not mean you’re likely to get ill more often than usual. But if you do get ill, it can make your blood glucose higher or lower, so you’ll have to take extra care, particularly if you’re being sick, have diarrhoea or are not eating much.
