Change the name of Type 1 Diabetes

There is a stigma around Type 1 Diabetes due to Diabetes being used as a general term that umbrellas Type 1 and Type 2. Most of the community do not understand there is a difference between the two types. Changing the name will help people understand that they are two completely different conditions
