When people talk about the Juvenile Diabetes Association they are usually referring to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International, or JDRF, which is a not for profit organization which is leads the way in funding research into new treatments and cures for diabetes worldwide. If the juvenile diabetes association was a real entity or organization it would be joining the ranks of the ADA, the American Cancer Society and the March of Dimes as an organization devoted to researching, treating, one of the dreaded diseases which afflicts the modern world with increasing frequency.

Juvenile diabetes, which a so named juvenile diabetes association would surely be fighting against is an autoimmune disease which causes the body to not produce sufficient quantities of insulin to metabolize the glucose which it takes in from food. This causes the blood glucose to rise to dangerous levels and can lead to a whole host of health problems and even coma and death. Juvenile diabetes is becoming so prevalent and such a problem that is fast becoming the leading chronic health problem among children and young adults. This disease can have detrimental effects that can be long term and definitely decrease the quality of life unless managed correctly.

Much research has gone into better treatments for juvenile diabetes and the search for a cure continues as doctors, scientists and analysts look for the cause of the disease in the hopes of finding a cure. New research is directed towards finding out it there is a like between the development of diabetes and genetics. The hope is that if a link is found there it might lead to a breakthrough in gene therapy to treat the disease, or even ways to diagnose the presence it the possible development of the disease in and in-vitro embryo. Whether you call it the Juvenile Diabetes Association or one of the other names, there is a great deal of time, effort, and money being put toward finding a cure for diabetes.
