Diabetes Mellitus: Childhood and Adolescence 2017


Diabetes results in high levels of glucose in the blood of the person due to defects or lack of insulin production or insulin action, which can result in
many complications, morbidity and mortality. Early diagnosis, treatment and monitoring can prevent or delay the long-term complications in various organs
of the body, cardio-vascular complications, eyes, nervous system, vessels, skin, kidneys and more. Both type 1 (T1DM) and type 2 (T2DM) diabetes
mellitus are increasing in children and adolescents (and in fact also adults) in recent years and becoming a major public health problem.
Research and treatment interventions can help children and adolescents live a longer life, better quality of life and better health.
It is estimated that 86 million adult Americans have prediabetes and therefore risk of developing T2DM with 1 in 10 unaware of their condition.
About 29 million people have actual diabetes with most T2DM. It is estimated in 2012 that about 208,000 persons under the age of 20 years have diabetes in
the United States (1, 2), but there is little data available on the prevalence of diabetes in the adolescent population (3).
