An illustration of Type 1 diabetes, a disease wherein the the cells in the pancreas that manufacture insulin are destroyed. Insulin works with the body to control the levels of glucose, which, if uncontrolled, can damage vital body organs and tissues. In this illustration, the insulin that emanates from the pancreas becomes less prominent, and ultimately disappears. The background is a pattern based on pancreatic islet cells, where insulin is normally produced.
