Welcome blessed viewers to Good People, Good Works on Supreme Master
Television. Type 1 diabetes is an auto-immune disorder where the body
eliminates the beta cells in the pancreas that produce insulin, a type
of necessary hormone.
Without insulin, blood sugar levels can
fluctuate dangerously. This in turn can lead to such severe conditions
as cardiovascular disease, hypoglycemia or low blood sugar levels, or
neuropathy or nerve damage. Type 2 diabetes is similar in that the body
cannot produce sufficient amounts of needed insulin or the cells cannot
recognize the presence of insulin.
Today’s program features the
Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, a United States-based non-profit
organization whose chief mission is to find a cure for type 1 diabetes.
The Foundation is the number one charitable funder of diabetes research
