What is T1D?

Join us in turning Type One into Type None.

Walk Website What is T1DType 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease that impacts millions of people around the world.

The disease occurs when the body’s immune system attacks and destroys the beta cells in the pancreas that produce insulin, a hormone essential to turning food into energy. Without insulin, glucose from food stays in the blood, where it can cause serious damage to all of the body’s organ systems.

Type 1 diabetes strikes both children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet or lifestyle. It requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on injected insulin.

With T1D there are no days off, and there is no cure. Join the JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes, and together, we will create a world without T1D. 

T1D by the numbers

  • 3,000,000 - the number of Americans who may have T1D
  • 85% - the percentage of people in the U.S. living with T1D who are adults
  • 30,000 - the number of people who are diagnosed with T1D in the U.S. every year - approximately 15,000 children and 15,000 adults
  • 23% - the increase in T1D incidence in people under age 20 between 2001 and 2009
  • $14.9 billion - the healthcare costs of T1D in the U.S. each year
