Vinod Kumari Yadav


Juvenile diabetes is one of the most common autoimmune diseases of childhood and, nowadays, is increasing an
alarming rate. Type 1 diabetes mellitus (Juvenile diabetes) is an immune-mediated, insulin-dependent condition
with unknown etiology. Considerable efforts have been made for the development of oral insulin for better
patient compliance. However, such options are not yet available in the market and insulin remains the mainstay

Sahaja or Jataja prameha (~genetic or hereditary) of Asadhya (difficult to cure or non-curable) type.
