Datamonitor Healthcare CV&Met Disease Analysis: Type 1 Diabetes

June 01, 2020

Diabetes mellitus is a group of chronic endocrine disorders characterized by hyperglycemia due to insufficient levels of insulin, a hormone responsible for regulating blood sugar. Symptoms include excessive excretion of urine (polyuria), thirst (polydipsia), constant hunger, weight loss, vision changes, and fatigue. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), approximately 8.5% of adults had diabetes in 2014.

Type 1 diabetes accounts for around 5–10% of the total diabetic population. The majority of cases of type 1 diabetes may be classified as type 1a, an autoimmune disease characterized by the destruction of pancreatic beta cells, with a minority of cases making up type 1b, which is described as idiopathic diabetes mellitus.
