Answer

Treatment of type 1 DM requires lifelong insulin therapy. A multidisciplinary approach by the physician, nurse, and dietitian, with regular specialist consultation, is needed to control glycemia, as well as to limit the development of its devastating complications and manage such complications when they do occur. (See Treatment and Medication.)
