How long will my child have type 1 diabetes? Can you outgrow it?

At this point, type 1 diabetes is a chronic disease, meaning you never outgrow it. However, JDRF is doing everything in its power to find a cure and also produce treatments that improve people’s lives as soon as possible. We were founded in 1970 by parents of children with type 1 diabetes, who made a promise similar to the one all JDRF volunteers have made to their loved ones with type 1 diabetes – the promise to find a cure.

In the meantime, one of the best things you can do is listen and learn from the experiences of others while also responding to your child’s individual needs or tending to your own. Avoid blaming yourself or your child when things don’t go smoothly. The reality is that type 1 diabetes is a difficult disease to manage, but we have come a long way and the technology is getting better all the time. Take advantage of the people, products, and other resources available to you.
