Diabetes and Blood Pressure Problems
Hypertension: Children Can Have It, Too
Hypertension, or high blood pressure, isn't limited to those 18 and older.
Overview of Diabetes Mellitus
Diabetes is a chronic disease that involves the regulation of blood sugar and occurs in two different forms, type 1 and type 2.
Teens and Diabetes
During adolescence, blood sugar levels become harder to control, resulting in levels that swing from too low to too high.
Type 1 Diabetes in Children
Type 1 diabetes usually develops in children or young adults, but can start at any age.
Type 2 Diabetes in Children
Type 2 diabetes is a metabolic disorder resulting from the body's inability to produce enough, or to properly use, insulin.
