Child Diabetes

For years it was rare to hear about a child with type 2 diabetes. Doctors used to think kids only got type 1, it was even called juvenile diabetes for a long time. In type 2 diabetes, the cells in your child's body don’t respond to the insulin, and glucose builds up in the bloodstream. It is called insulin resistance. In time, the sugar levels in the body get too high for it to handle. That could lead to other conditions in the future, like heart disease, blindness, and kidney failure.

Who Gets It?


Type 2 diabetes is most likely to affect kids who are:

  • Girls

  • Overweight

  • Have a family history of diabetes

  • American Indian, African-American, Asian, or Hispanic/Latino

  • Have a problem called insulin resistance

This leads to the symptoms of diabetes:
  • Increased thirst and frequent urination.

  • Weight loss

  • Fatigue

  • Blurred vision

  • Slow-healing sores or frequent infections

​It is important to identify these symptoms early, since children that are diagnosed late may become ill, because of the high blood sugars and dehydration, requiring intravenous insulin and fluids in a pediatric emergency room or critical care unit to stabilize their condition.
