Type 1 Diabetes


Type 1 diabetics tend to be at elevated risk of cardiovascular conditions. Meditation helps to manage the condition by relaxing the body and widening arteries to increase blood flow and improve overall heart health.

  • The problem

    Type 1 insulin-dependent diabetes usually affects younger people and stems from an immune system response that mistakenly identifies insulin-secreting cells in the pancreas as foreign invaders and attacks them.

    This leads to a decreased ability to deliver insulin to cells which are crucial in the uptake of glucose and essential fatty acids. The cells starve, and our organs can no longer function correctly.

    Without a proper home, the circulating glucose and fatty acids instead find themselves gumming up the kidneys, eyes and blood vessels, leading to kidney problems, blindness, atherosclerosis and chronic pain. They also bind to proteins and take them out of action too.

    We are left to manage the situation with daily insulin injections which we must get just right; the cells starve with too little insulin, but the brain becomes deprived of energy if there is too much.
