Diabetes In Children
There are different types of Diabetes mellitus - the most common ones are called Diabetes mel. type 1 and Diabetes mel. type 2. Type 1 is caused by an reaction of the body against insulin producing cells in the pancreas - it's usually diagnosed during the childhood, that's why is often called "juvenile diabetes" - this kind of Diabetes is not difficult to discover (if the doctor got the first clue..), thus your doctor is probably right - and as your doctor told you hopefully your child can be helped easily with insulin replacement...
Diabetes mel. type 2 is extremely rare in young patients, maybe that's what you've heard about.
(I just got this question via system message, maybe it was already answered before)
