Prevention of Type 2 Diabetes in Children?

Together We Can!

The Biggest Risk for Type 2 Diabetes?



Extra body weight blocks the action of insulin.  This  forces the pancreas (the organ that makes insulin) to work harder until it wears out.

Type 2 Diabetes

1. Our goal is to slow weight gain while growth continues.

If Your Child has a BMI > 30

Medication Is Likely Essential.
