So, the method of treatment of type 1 diabetes is insulin injections. It works as well as insulin produced by the body on its own. The diet with this type of diabetes will not significantly improve, but it will be able to support the basic metabolic processes in the body, and it will not lead to complications. Also, the body can be maintained by physical exertion.
