Who said young people do not get diabetes, I am 15 and i have diabetes. Its not the age that matters, its just the fact whether you get it or not which is again linked to the lifestyle and presence or absence of family history of diabetes i was told when i asked teh same question to my doc. Even i used to think only old people get it.
