Juvenile Diabetes

Type 1 diabetes used to be called "insulin dependent" or "juvenile diabetes." In type 1 diabetes, the pancreas stops making insulin and you need to get insulin from a shot or a pump.

Type 2 diabetes used to be called "adult onset diabetes" but now more kids are getting type 2 diabetes. In type 2 diabetes, the pancreas still makes some insulin but the cells can't use it very well.

Being overweight increases the risk of getting type 2 diabetes. Kids who are not active or who have a family member with diabetes are more likely to get it. Here are some tips for parents with overweight children.

Some racial and ethnic groups have a greater chance of getting diabetes. They include American Indians, African Americans, Hispanics/Latinos, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. You do not get diabetes from eating too much sugar.
