When Diabetes Hits Younger People: Things That Parents Should Know


Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/16/2016 -- Diabetes among younger generation like small children is very different from diabetes among adults. In a recent report on Medline Plus, studies have shown that the occurrence of diabetes among teenagers is more than the previous estimates.

The report said that current findings show that there is 0.80 percent prevalence of diabetes among teenage patients, around double than those of previous estimates, accounted for 0.34 percent.

The study also showed that many teenagers who have diabetes or pre-diabetes conditions do not know that they have the disease. Therefore, it is important for both the patient and the parents to be informed about the disease, so they can be signaled when there are tell-tale factors of the disease.

Parents are the most heavily affected when they find that their children are suffering from diabetes.

According to a separate article on Medline Plus, the common type of the disease found in teenagers and children is type 1 diabetes or juvenile diabetes. The pancreas has reportedly been unable to produce insulin in this diabetes type. Without the insulin, there are high levels of sugar in the blood. The article also specified that younger children are experiencing type 2 diabetes as well.

What makes this alarming?

"Children have a higher risk of type 2 diabetes if they are obese, have a family history or diabetes, or are not active, and do not eat well," Medline Plus stated.

The website also enumerated some tips on how parents and patients can lower the risk of diabetes. First, they always have to maintain the right weight and make sure they are physically active. It is also important to eat healthy foods and limit the time they spend with computers and television.
