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 (IDDM).

Symptoms
The symptoms of diabetes include:

  • Excessive thirst
  • Frequent urination
  • Hunger
  • Weight loss
  • Fatigue
  • Visual disturbances, such as blurred vision
  • Itching skin, particularly around the genitals
  • 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.
