Type 1 Diabetes

Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is a serious and life-long autoimmune disease that affects over 120,000 Australians. 

It impacts the body’s ability to process sugar by attacking the beta cells in our pancreas that produce insulin. Insulin helps convert sugar into the fuel our bodies need. Without insulin, sugar builds up in our bloodstream in life-threatening amounts. Multiple times each day insulin needs to be injected into the body of someone living with T1D.

There is no known cure for T1D and it requires 24/7 management for survival.

With your support, JDRF can help to find a cure.

I’m fundraising for JDRF to defeat T1D!

I’m fundraising for JDRF to defeat T1D! I’ll be hosting an event and asking for your support to help raise funds for research to cure, prevent and better treat type 1 diabetes.

Type 1 diabetes can strike anyone at any time, and 7 Australians are diagnosed every day. Diagnosis means a 24/7 fight with no break and facing an extra 180 decisions a day to remain safe and healthy.

DONATE NOW to help the #JDRFBlueArmy and change the lives of Australians living with T1D. Thank you.
