        "Thanks to significant research advances in recent years, people living with (T1D) type 1 diabetes have received better treatments and therapies. Scientists have made headway in uncovering the possible cause of type 1 diabetes, and in their efforts to find ways to prevent, treat, or reverse the autoimmune disease and its complications. Despite this progress, we still have a long road ahead of us to identify a cure that will eliminate type 1 diabetes once and for all," said M. Marie Davis, Executive Director JDRF Greater Missouri and Southern Illinois Chapter.

        November is National Diabetes Awareness Month, a time to bring attention to a terrible disease.

        T1D is an autoimmune disease that strikes both children and adults. Unrelated to diet or lifestyle, T1D causes lifelong dependence on injected insulin and carries the constant worry of life-threatening complications like nerve damage, blindness, amputation, stroke, heart attack and kidney failure. It requires intensive, never-ending management. There are NO days off. Insulin is a therapy. It is NOT a cure.
