Type 1 Diabetes
Our current trial is for individuals between the ages of 18-75 who have Type 1 diabetes. 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.
Type 1 diabetes is a chronic condition in which the pancreas produces little or no insulin.
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
