The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Australia is a non-profit organization affiliated with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International in the United States. Established in 1982, the foundation is dedicated to funding basic and applied medical research to help discover a cure for diabetes and prevent its complications. Juvenile diabetes, also known as insulin-dependent diabetes or type I diabetes mellitus, is characterized by impaired carbohydrate, fat, and protein metabolism due to deficient production of insulin. This form of diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which insulin-secreting cells of the pancreas are destroyed due to an abnormal immune response. Associated symptoms have an abrupt onset and typically include excessive thirst and urination, weight loss and blurred vision. The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Australia is committed to promoting and supporting scientific research; providing educational resources that are specific to the needs of children, young adults, and family members affected by juvenile diabetes; engaging in advocacy and lobbying efforts; and providing networking opportunities that enable those affected by juvenile diabetes to exchange information, resources, and mutual support.
