control that disease in an effective way.
Firstly, in type 1 diabetes or juvenile

system starts to generate cells that damage the pancreatic cells caused for producing insulin in
the body. The children who are suffered in this disease cannot continue their lives if they do
not take insulin every day. Because of juvenile every year most of the children are at the risk
for heart attack, stroke, kidney disease and immune complications.
type 2 diabetes Can also be found in Children
Secondly, in type 2 diabetes, this was diagnosed in adults
only historically but now it is found in children as well. This type is increasingly destroying
the children’s health now it is the condition actually where the body is unable to use the
insulin because of the resistance build by this disease. If the child has received that disease
in his genetic history then it may be closely related to obesity. It is almost spreading in
African American, Latino, Asia, and American Indian children.
It is considered that diabetes, either from the first
group or second, can be controlled by putting a change in diet and check in exercise timings
that is taken by the child in the whole day. Although it is not demanded to remove all their
favourite eatables rather the best thing is to teach the children about the concept of food
portion, its control and healthy diet.

fruits rather than potato chips, grain bread instead of white bread, carrot and celery sticks

healthy life style it will help your children to move as a healthy being like go to the park for
