T1International: Saving Diabetic Lives


| 6/28/2017 12:30:00 PM


Many misconceptions are associated with diabetes, but it’s a complex condition that predominately affects people in two forms. You have type 1 and type 2; type 1 diabetes is typically caused by an autoimmune response in which the immune system attacks insulin making cells in the pancreas. The cause hasn’t been confirmed and the healthiest individuals can be affected.

It’s Not Only the U.S.

While diabetes is prevalent in the U.S., it’s making a painful mark on countries around the world. It has been speculated that rates of type 1 aren’t high in some poverty stricken countries because people die quickly after diagnosis, since they don’t have access to insulin. Insulin is life: Type 1 diabetics around the world are dying without it.

T1International is aiming to change the world for diabetics. Their website states that they are “working toward access and affordability of access to insulin, diabetes supplies, medical care and education for all people living with type 1 diabetes.” Awareness is raised through personal stories form type 1 diabetics, statistics and other data, as well as providing knowledge to those supporting the cause through the T1International Advocacy Tool Kit.

Elizabeth and Stephen Nabeta began the foundation in honor of their daughter, Sonia Stephanie Clarissa Kyagaba Nabeta, who lost her battle with type 1 diabetes in 2015.
