Low Carb Diabetic Diet

Diabetes in Woman and Children

Diabetes is a non-discriminatory disease, attacking men, women and children in almost equal numbers.


For women, however, there are times in a woman's life, particularly women with insulin dependent diabetes, when she faces special problems. Let's take a closer look at these problem areas, which all have some relationship with the woman's reproductive function.


For children, almost invariably, this will be insulin dependent diabetes (IDDM), the sort that strikes children and young people. As we've seen, it is far less common than the non-insulin dependent variety. Very rarely, children may get non-insulin dependent diabetes. This is an hereditary disease, which is called MODY – Maturity Onset Diabetes in the Young.

So diabetes is relatively uncommon in the young – but that doesn't make it any easier for you when your child is diagnosed. Unlike non-insulin dependent diabetes, the insulin dependent variety can develop in a fast and frightening fashion. The child starts losing weight, is abnormally thirsty and hungry, weak and irritable, and may even collapse. This is an emergency situation and immediate medical care is modal.
