Symptoms of Type 1 Diabetes Can Be Hard To Stomach!

When your pancreas decides to decrease its insulin workload or stop producing it altogether, AKA type 1 diabetes it can cause excessive hunger, thirst, urination, and tiredness coupled with unexplained weight loss, mood swings, and blurry vision. This chronic condition usually appears in childhood, too, so managing it can be a lifelong pain in the pancreas.
