The reason is that the beta cells that create insulin are not working, or in the case of type 1 diabetes the autoimmune system targets them and kills them. There are 5 kinds of cells inside an islet cell, one of them is the beta cell which is where insulin is made. Without it, the body starts to have increased sugar levels and much of the metabolic system goes into disarray.
