Treating Type 2 Diabetes in Children

by Jill A. Goldfarb, MD

If your child remains angry, depressed, or in denial about his diabetes in spite of your best efforts, it may be necessary to seek professional mental health counseling.

Help is at hand
You are not alone in the treatment of your child with Type 2 diabetes. There are many resources available to help you and your family, including your diabetes team and community and national resources. Accessing these resources and making lifestyle modifications are important and can decrease the amount of medical care that your child may need.

Children with Type 2 diabetes have a bright future ahead of them, and with education and support, they can also live a normal kid’s life.
