Diabetes in Children and Teens

Posted by on January 21st, 2016 Posted in: Children and Teens, Multilingual, Websites


The American Diabetes Association estimates that there are 208,000 Americans under the age of 20 diagnosed with diabetes.

MedlinePlus has a Health Topics page devoted to Diabetes in Children and Teens. It has links to many useful resources about type 1 and type 2 diabetes, and a number of the resources are available in Spanish. http://1.usa.gov/1Pkwj9l

The National Diabetes Education Program has a resource site for Youth and Teens Living With Diabetes. Teens can read about diabetes and how to manage their disease. Parents can read answers to many questions they have after their child has been diagnosed. The site includes information on both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. http://1.usa.gov/1PkvYmX
