Our Warning Signs Awareness Campaign
Knowing the warning signs of Type 1 diabetes saves lives. Type 1 diabetes can strike anyone at any age. At diagnosis of Type 1, approximately 42% of patients are in DKA (diabetic ketoacidosis) in the United States. DKA is a life-threatening condition that can occur from a delayed diagnosis of Type 1 diabetes. This is a solvable problem and an issue where awareness can make a meaningful difference.
Our Warning Signs of Type 1 Diabetes Awareness Campaign is designed to place the warning signs of Type 1 diabetes — including excessive thirst, frequent urination, unexplained weight-loss, and severe fatigue — in front of as many people as possible through strategic partnerships, volunteer advocates, and PSAs encouraging the public to immediately see their healthcare provider for a blood glucose or urine test in an effort to avoid DKA at diagnosis.
