There are more than 1 million people living with type 1 diabetes worldwide. People with classical type 1 diabetes are often, though not always young and require insulin therapy life long without which they are at risk of ketoacidosis. The proper and early diagnosis of type 1 diabetes is critical because of therapeutic implications and the prevention of diabetes-related complications. As the incidence of type 1 diabetes is increasing in India, and given unique socioeconomic challenges in the diagnosis and management of type 1 diabetes in India, it is important to approach the diagnosis from an Indian perspective. In this article, we discuss the practical aspect of clinical presentation and diagnosis of type 1 diabetes.
