  1. When you have type 1 diabetes your body does not produce enough insulin. You have to eat correctly to maintain insulin levels. So if your heavy, you have to eat properly and loose weight. If your not use to eating properly, you will feel as if you are starving at first, but your body eventually gets used to it.
