"As an adult, your doctor may warn you about the risk of diabetes. But it is not just adults who are at risk – children may also be susceptible to diabetes, or even pre-diabetes. Should you be concerned?
November is Diabetes Awareness Month with the goal of bringing attention to this ever growing disease. In 2015, diabetes will affect 30 million children and adults in the United States, nearly 10 percent of the population, according to the American Diabetes Association. Another 86 million have pre-diabetes and are at-risk for developing Type 2 Diabetes. Children and adolescents are not excluded from these numbers."
