Abstract

1. Based on strong research evidence, type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that has an underlying genetic predisposition (Jahromi, 2007). 2. Based on strong research evidence, risks of diabetes complications are decreased with improved glycemic control (lower HbA1c) (DCCT Research Group, 1993). 3. Based on some research data and consensus opinion, insulin analogs, glucose monitoring, and delivery device technology have improved management of this disease and quality of life of affected individuals (Silverstein, 2005).
