     Type 2 Diabetes



    Type 2 diabetes is being diagnosed at an alarming rate among children and adolescents. Being overweight, making unhealthy food choices (poor diet), not being active (lack of exercise), and having a family history of diabetes place children at risk for a disease once thought to affect only adults. There is no cure for type 2 diabetes. Prevention, early detection, and diagnosis are extremely important as type 2 diabetes can be prevented, managed, and controlled with healthy lifestyle choices and medication, if needed. Preventing and managing type 2 diabetes may prevent long-term damage to the blood vessels in the heart, kidneys, eyes, and nerves.
