Diabetes in Children is growing to be a point of concern in India, as there is a rapid increase in the number of cases with diabetes amongst the youth and children. Earlier, children were affected by type 1 or juvenile diabetes, where the body cannot produce insulin. But with sedentary lifestyle, irregular eating habits and obesity, children and adolescents are becoming more susceptible to developing type 2 diabetes. In type 2 diabetes, the body either does not make insulin or cannot use insulin. Early diagnosis and timely treatment of diabetes can improve health in Children.
