How long can a teenager go without knowing they have diabetes?
In children, type 1 diabetes is a disorder in which the body stops producing a vital hormone (insulin). Because your child requires insulin to live, the missing insulin must be restored by injections or an insulin pump. Juvenile diabetes or insulin - dependent diabetes was once a term used to describe type 1 diabetes in youngsters.

When a child is diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, it can be frightening, especially at first. Suddenly, you and your child must learn how to give injections, measure carbohydrates, and monitor blood sugar, depending on his or her age.
