From New York, USA:
In autoimmune type 1 diabetes, are all of the islets of Langerhans attacked?
When a person develops type 1A (autoimmune) diabetes, there are still some functioning islet cells, but they are not able to make enough insulin. In time, the number of functioning islet cells is reduced to zero.
