Management of Type 1 diabetes in children

The prevalence of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes (T1DM and T2DM) is increasing among children. T1DM, however, continues to be the most common type found in pediatricians. To ensure optimal treatment, health care workers must be aware of the different forms of diabetes identified in children, particularly the characteristics that set T1DM and T2DM apart. Lifelong exogenous insulin delivery is essential for survival in people with T1DM in general. However, compared to adults with diabetes, children have quite different demands and difficulties. Treatment, objectives, and age-appropriate needs must all be addressed on an individual basis. Maintaining glucose levels as close to normal as feasible, avoiding acute problems, and preventing long-term issues are the key goals for treating pediatric T1DM.
