More than 1 million children and adults in the United States have type 1 diabetes, according to the American Diabetes Association.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) note that about 5%Trusted Source of all people who have diabetes have type 1.

Type 1 diabetes can significantly impact a person's life, as people need to monitor their blood sugar levels regularly to ensure they do not become dangerously high or low.

Currently, people with type 1 diabetes measure their blood sugar levels by pricking a finger several times a day or wearing a glucose monitor. Depending on the measurements, they may have to administer insulin using an injection or insulin pump.
