The management of type 2 diabetes in children and adolescents is complex and poses a range of unique challenges. Treatment may involve weight reduction, lifestyle modification, exercise programs, and medications to treat hyperglycemia. However, few of the drugs used in the treatment of type 2 diabetes and even fewer of those used to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease have been licensed for use in children and adolescents.
A state-of-the-art resource, this book provides a comprehensive review of current research and developments. International experts address the interrelationship of diabetes, obesity, insulin resistance and the metabolic syndrome; the spectrum of clinical features and diagnostic issues; the epidemiology, pathophysiologic basis, genetics of this disorder; and its treatment in children and adolescents.
