No : Type I (Juvenile Diabetes) affects a small, yet growing number of children in the United States. It is due to an autoimmune phenomenon where the pancreas ceases to produce insulin. Type II (adult onset) is becoming a growing concern among morbidly obese adolescents which leads insulin resistance. The body can not produce enough insulin to meet the demands.
