Oh god, help these children. I have diabetes and suffering a lot which I was tested at 46 yrs of my age. If these children have the problem since their early years I think they suffer a lot. I am sorry for all those parents who have children with sugar
Dietitian & Nutritionist Ms. Ketki's  Response

Type 1: Insulin dependent
But now a days due to sedentary lifestyle, increased childhood obesity ; even type 2 (Non Insulin dependent ) is also seen .

Follow healthy lifestyle with balanced diet and regular exercise.

yes it is possible dear. my friends daughter is 10 years old now. she was diagnosed to have sugar at age of six. nowadays anthing is possible.

  User's Response
Yes, the children can get the sugar. This is type 1 diabetes seen in children. It can occur at young age. It is mainly due to less presence of insulin production in the body of the child.

yes this is called juvenile onset diabetes and i think they should be on life long insulin..
