Type 1 diabetes affects about 3 million Americans and can occur at any age. It is most commonly diagnosed in children and adults younger than 30, but more adults are being diagnosed with type 1 diabetes during adulthood. A diagnosis of type 1 later in life is sometimes called Latent-Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults (LADA).
Symptoms of type 1 diabetes include:
- increased thirst
- increased hunger
- rapid weight loss
- blurred vision (temporary)
- fatigue (tiredness)
- frequent urination
