Juvenile Diabetes

  • As many as 3 million Americans may have type 1 diabetes.
  • Each year, approximately 30,000 Americans are diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes; over 15,000 are children. That’s 35 children each day, and about 1 child every hour.

Blood Sugar and Insulin Needs
Research

"Both children and adults like me who live with type 1 diabetes need to be mathematicians, physicians, personal trainers and dieticians all rolled into one. We need to be constantly factoring and adjusting, making frequent finger sticks to check blood sugars, and giving ourselves multiple daily insulin injections just to stay alive." - JDRF International Chairman, Mary Tyler Moore
"This disease controls our lives with all the pricking of the fingers, shots, high and low blood sugars; it's like being on a seesaw. Without a cure, we will be stuck on this seesaw till the day we die." - Tre Kawkins, 12, Michigan
"I want to live someday without thinking about my diabetes. It's a lot for a little kid to keep up with." - Luke Varadi, 11, South Carolina
