SDS is Happy to announce the launch of our first Check-In For Charity fundraiser! For every 10 patients that “check in” to Schaumburg Dental Studio on their social media accounts during the month of May, we will donate enough for 1 hour of research to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).
JDRF is the leading diabetes foundation funding Type 1 diabetes research. JDRF’s goal is to progressively eliminate the impact of Type 1 diabetes from people’s lives until we achieve a world without Type 1 diabetes. JDRF collaborates with a wide variety of partners and is the only organization with the scientific resources, regulatory influence, and a working plan to better treat, prevent, and eventually cure Type 1 diabetes
What is Type 1 Diabetes?
Type 1 diabetes, formerly known as juvenile diabetes or insulin-dependent diabetes, is a lifelong condition in which the pancreas produces insufficient or no insulin, a hormone necessary for sugar (glucose) to enter cells to produce energy.
Numerous factors contribute to type 1 diabetes, including genetics and exposure to certain viruses as a child. Although type 1 diabetes usually appears during childhood or adolescence, it also can begin in adults.
Despite active research, type 1 diabetes has no known cure but it can be managed. With proper treatment, people with type 1 diabetes can expect to live longer, healthier lives than in the past.
