Obesity is on the rise in the Diabetes Reducer United States, and it isn't news that many of the increasingly obese are children. Along with this trend has come another even more disturbing trend and that's the rise of type 2 diabetes among children.

If you suspect that your child might have diabetes, there are things you can do. The first thing is to examine the symptoms. Type 2 diabetes can develop slowly and some children won't show any signs or experience any symptoms, but those you should watch for are Increased thirst and frequent urination When sugar builds up in the bloodstream, fluid is pulled from the tissues. The result is thirst. As your child drinks more than usual, they may also urinate more than usual.

Increased hunger When there isn't enough insulin, sugar can't move into the cells and the child's muscles and organs run out of energy. This leads to hunger.Weight loss Even though your child may be eating more than ever, the energy that sugar supplies isn't reaching the cells and so the muscle tissues and fat stores are shrinking. As a result, your child may actually be losing weight.

Fatigue When sugar doesn't reach the cells, the result is tiredness and irritability.Blurred vision When the blood sugar is too high, fluid may be drawn away from the lenses of the eyes, which can affect the ability to focus clearly.Slow-healing of sores and/or frequent infections Diabetes can affect your child's ability to resist infections and to heal.

Though not very common even children are susceptible to diabetes especially if its in the family. pediatric therapy can helo with managing it a bit. But it is one disease which doesn't leave, ever!
