This is "metabolic syndrome" and indicates insulin resistance. That means that he has a high blood insulin that does not do its job properly. The common cause is BAD DIET. Take all the "junk" away, particularly all the sugar,sweeteners,pop, ice cream, candies etc. The overall health of an individual with this is awful and you can expect complications.

Infancy


The youngest child in my practice with new onset diabetes was about 8 months old. She had recurrent yeast diaper rash and had elevated sugar levels in her urine and blood. Any child can be tested for diabetes with a urinalysis and a blood sugar level, so technically a newborn can be tested for diabetes. Diabetes is very uncommon in young infants.

Endocrinologist


It is a very complex question. A child with diabetes should ideally be under the care of an endocrinologist. Dietary management, exercise and close monitoring of blood sugars and ketones are critical to help with medication management.

Depends on many factors. If diabetes runs in both the mothers side and the fathers side of the family, the child has a increased chance of developing diabetes.

Child Diabetes

Interesting Fact

Beating diabetes starts with knowing your child's blood glucose. Check it often. I check my son 10-15 times a day.

And Weight Loss


Drink a lot,pee a lot,eat unbelivable quantities of food and eventually serious weight loss in relatively early stages. A pearl--if a child sleeps 8-10 hrs at night without peeing,diabetes very highly unlikely.

Drinking and peeing


Kids with type 1 diabetes will have to drink and pee a lot. This is especially noticeable when it happens overnight causing disrupted sleep. Some may start wetting the bed again. Many kids are also hungrier and lose weight before diagnosis.

Diabetes comes in 2 basic forms. The children's form develops abruptly after a virus destroys insulin production.They quickly loose sugar in the urine, eat & drink ravenously & loose 10lb in a week. The fluffy adults make insulin but not enough and they gradually get into trouble over months or years.A glucose tolerance test or A1C can give you early indication on a teen, in pre teens a urine test

 Exercise Diet Hormone Children Diabetes Diabetes risks Child Diabetes Child Health Diabetes Type 2

Insulin...


...is a natural hormone, and the only way to treat Type I DM. Type II in children often responds to diet and exercise.

NO


Insulin is the treatment for Type I Diabetes Mellitus. These individuals do not make enough insulin, and must have supplemental insulin. While diet and exercise are important, they do not reverse it. Type II Diabetes patients have insulin resistance-and may benefit from dietary management, weight loss and exercise. At times, Type II Diabetes patients may reverse their need for medication.

No


The only way to treat type 1 diabetes is to replace the insulin that the pancreas no longer makes. Studies have failed to find supplements to reverse the process or even slow it down.

He may develop complications. Dr Thornalley in England has shown that diabetics excrete large amounts of vitamin B 1 in urine. I would advise a supplement of thiamine and magnesium with a well rounded multivitamin for life. Seek a good nutritionist for doses.

 Overweight Weight Diabetes Losing weight Children Child Health Diabetes Type 2

Type 1 or 2


Children that develop type 2 Diabetes are usually obese at the time of diagnosis. Children with type 1 are usually lean, and present with a history of weight loss. Warning since 20% of our children are overweight you sometimes have a hard time determening which type of diabetes at the begining.
