Don’t ignore these 5 signs of diabetes in children
Diabetes is one of the most common – and increasingly prevalent – chronic diseases in children. For parents, the challenge is recognizing the symptoms in their child.
Since the onset is slow and the changes are subtle, diabetes often isn’t recognized until a child is very ill, usually in conjunction with another illness.
So how do parents know if their child has diabetes? Keep an eye out for these five common signs:
• An increase in thirst or urination.
• Increased appetite with sudden or unexplained weight loss.
• Vision changes.
