Diabetes In Children

Diabetes is often referred to as childhood or juvenile diabetes, although it is most commonly referred to as type 1 diabetes.  90% to 95% of carriers of type 1 daiabetes have been found out to be kids below the of 16

Juvenile diabetes may be caused by the pancreas’ failure to manufacture insulin. It is an infectious illness, meaning that the defense function of the body itself has damaged the tissues or organs of the individual.

The incidence with teenage diabetes has tripled in the last 30 years, and we have had kids with type 2 diabetes for the first time in US and also in Europe

Obesity can easily explain type 2 diabetes, but it cannot be explained by the increase in type 1 diabetes in children. As we all know, the cause of juvenile diabetes is a mixture of biological and environmental influences. However, most children do not have a family history of diabetes.

The performance of juvenile diabetes is the same as that of adults. Loss of appetite, weight loss, exhaustion, and poor urination are common phenomena, but childhood diabetes can often cause abdominal discomfort, headaches, and mobility problems.

In addition to the usual signs, doctors should also acknowledge the risk of diabetes in children with persistent abdominal problems for several weeks.

If you think your child may have certain signs and tell the doctor what symptoms you think your child may have, you should be prepared for a detailed evaluation. Be sure to remind them of any problems that your child may encounter.
