>Not all kids are at risk. The main problem is obesity - a major risk factor for diabetes and a warning sign for doctors that a child might be diabetic. Testing is being recommended for kids in the 10 to 19 age bracket who are obese and have a family history of diabetes or fall into a high risk ethnic background for diabetes like African Americans, Hispanics, Asians and Native Americans.
>But because Type II diabetes can be a gradual development, many children might not show any symptoms. There are some signs to watch out for: excessive thirst, frequent urination, increase in appetite and weight loss, decreased strength, fatigue and headache.
>With diet and exercise it's possible to correct the condition, but if that doesn't work there are also drugs available to help the body use its insulin more effectively. And taking insulin directly is a good way to supplement the drugs and make sure you have enough.
