IDDM

A chronic condition in which the pancreas makes few or no insulin because the beta cells have been destroyed. The body is then not able to use the glucose (blood sugar) for energy. IDDM generally comes on abruptly, although the hurt to the beta cells may begin many earlier. The signs of IDDM are a great thirst, famine, a need to urinate often, and loss of weight. To treat the malady, the face should inject insulin, follow a diet plan, exercice daily, and test blood glucose different times a day. IDDM generally occurs in children and adults who are under age 30. This type of diabetes used to be known as juvenile diabetes, juvenile-onset diabetes, and ketosis-prone diabetes.
