How Various Countries Diagnose and Treat Type One Diabetes

by Taylor K. Class of 2021

For my global scholars capstone project, I focused on the treatment of Type One Diabetes in various countries. After being diagnosed with Type 1 in 8th grade, I have been fascinated by its complex treatment.  I researched treatments in China, Japan, and developing countries and compared their methodology with that of the U.S. Through my research, I found that different countries use different types of insulin therapy and technological devices. Additionally, I found that because developing countries have less access to medical resources, issues like insulin shortages and poor treatment of type 1 diabetes arise, leading to a higher increase in fatality due to untreated diabetes. Overall, it was fascinating to compare methods used in the U.S to treat an autoimmune disease with other cultures and nations.
