Doctors in New York have noted a significant increase in the incidences of children of New York, being diagnosed by Type I and Type II Diabetes. The main reason behind this increase is because of children getting more overweight and more obese than what was noted a decade of two before. While this increase was expected given the improving levels of the society, but not only Type II Diabetes has increased, but there has also been increase in Type I.
Dr. Teresa Quattrin is the chair of pediatrics at UB Medical School and also the Pediatrician-in-chief at Women and Children’s Hospital. She admits that knowing the increasing trend of Diabetes in Children, but she also admits of not keeping the public in the dark. She also admits that increase in Diabetes in children has led to increase in Cardiovascular risks in them.
