There seems to be no limit to the growing number of kids and teens diagnosed with diabetes.
One in every 523 kids and teens in the US develop the disease.
That is according to a study called, “Search for Diabetes in Youth.”
The growing number is disturbing to many researchers.
Developing diabetes before age 20 means a lower life expectancy than the general population.
The study reported caucasian children had the highest rate of diabetes up to age nine.
African-Americans and Caucasians topped the list among adolescents and young adults.
