Causes and Symptoms of Juvenile Diabetes
Type 1 diabetes is the type of diabetes in which the pancreas
produces no insulin or extremely small amounts. People with type
1 need to take insulin injections in order to live. While
insulin allows a person with type 1 diabetes to stay alive, it
does not cure the disease, nor does it prevent the development
of serious complications, which can be many and varied. High
blood sugar levels eventually damage blood vessels, nerves, and
organ systems in the body.
Juvenile diabetes can affect anyone of
any age, but is more common in people under 30 years and tends
to develop in childhood. Other names for juvenile diabetes
include Type I diabetes and insulin dependent diabetes mellitus
The symptoms of diabetes include:
- Excessive thirst
- Frequent urination
- Weight loss
- Visual disturbances, such as blurred
- Itching skin, particularly around the
- Nausea and vomiting.
If your child is experiencing these symptoms,
they are in need of a check up. The first step in the treatment of
juvenile diabetes is choosing the right doctor. I recommend Dr.
Bernstein from Mamaroneck, New York. If you don't live in that area, or
can't travel or afford him - use great caution during the selection
process. I am going to begin compiling a list of doctors who will treat
Juvenile Diabetes successfully in the near future.
