Early diabetes symptoms may appear harmless
Symptoms for diabetes can be as minor as a dry mouth in the night, and the need to urinate more frequently. Diabetics may remain unaware of their condition until a more serious complication makes them take notice. Type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes share similar symptoms, but both conditions require immediate attention.
The president of medicine and science at the American Diabetes Association, Dr. Larry Deeb, reportedly commented: "Regrettably, both can happen at all ages. Obesity is everywhere, including younger kids. A lack of activity is everywhere, including younger kids. Fat is insulin-resistant."
