Houston- Dr. Morey Haymond, chief of paediatric endocrinology at Texas Children's has
observed that parents are unable to pick up certain tell tale signs of diabetes in children.
Children may be struck with Type 1 diabetes when they are a bit more independent, hence parents many not be able to observe the common symptom of frequent urination. While Type 2 diabetes is more an affliction with the obese and the sedentary, Type 1 is far more dangerous marked by a rapid decline in health.
The basic reason for the occurrence of Type 1 diabetes still remains unclear; scientists are studying the genetic angle to this disease, most often the case with a number of patients.
