Changing Pattern Of Diabetes In Kids

Do you notice that your kids wish to urinate often and they are always thirsty?

Watch out because they may be a diabetes sufferer. Basically, diabetes is a serious metabolic disease which is characterized by an increase in the level of blood sugar within the body; such increase is due to the damage of organ functions particularly the eyes, the nerves, kidneys, heart, and the blood vessels. The condition takes place when insulin is not produced by the pancreas rightly. In some other cases, it may take place when the insulin is not properly used.

All children go through so many changes, they are always growing and they seem to be on the go from the moment they wake up so it can be hard to tell when they are suddenly showing the symptons.

Diabetes is divided into various kinds and people in the medical field are quite alarmed by the changing pattern of diabetes in kids. For many years it was merely noted that diabetes would take place because it is passed from one family generation to the other but studies now reveal that lifestyle and diet also have their roles to play.

The changing pattern of diabetes in kids is mainly down to the increase in the amount of fast food that we are all throwing into our bodies on what seems like a daily basis. The more rubbish we throw in to our kids bodies the higher the amount of diabetes will be. Because of this, it is advised that everyone, but especially kids should control the foods that they pop into their mouth.

As much as possible, choose organic, fresh and healthy foods. Get rid of junkfoods and soda—after all, they would not be named as “junk” if they are good for the body. It is needed that parents should learn how to teach their kids about the proper foods to be eaten.  As much as possible, they should take the initiative of preparing the food that will be served on the table rather than ordering from fast food chains.

I’m ALWAYS thirsty but not diagnosed with diabetes?

Basically, that’s my problem. I’m ALWAYS thirsty.
It doesn’t really bother me, other than the fact that I go through every liquid in the house like it’s nothing. I don’t know why though.
I know it’s a symptom of diabetes, but I’ve been tested for that already and I’m not diabetic. I’ve been like this since I was a kid. Seriously, it freaks me out because everyone will be on their first glass of water, milk, juice, etc. and I will easily be on my 5th or 6th. Seriously, I don’t know why I’m always so thirsty! Any ideas?
