Hello. Usually, type 1 of diabetes mellitus is more common among children. Endocrine pancreatic cells called beta cells are usually destroyed. The exact cause is unknown. Some people say it is done by viruses, others by autoimmune processes. In any case, since there are no beta cells, there is not enough insulin in organism. Insulin is very important for glucose’s entering into the cell. Glucose is energy or food for each cell. In this way, these cells are hungry. Kids usually start immediately with insulin therapy unlike older people with type 2 of diabetes. I hope this helps. Bye!
