My husband has type 1 diabetes that was diagnosed over 13 years ago. It is very difficult to explain how he has type 1 without being born with it. How do you explain to people that type 1 can be an immunological response or that it's always been there just not presenting until a trauma occurs or that it isn't from drug or alcohol abuse. Are there many people that acquire type 1 through some kind of trauma? Or can substance abuse cause it.
