Coming Epidemic Of Type 2 Diabetes In Young Adults
Original post made by PAMD, Gunn High School, on Jul 12, 2008
How will the epidemic of childhood obesity today affect the future health of Americans?
As concern about children's health grows along with their waistlines, medical experts fear that the childhood obesity epidemic could lead to large numbers of younger adults developing type 2 diabetes, causing serious and lasting health complications for future generations of Americans.
The longer a person has diabetes, Lee says, the more likely he or she is to develop devastating complications.
Young adults with type 2 diabetes are therefore more likely to develop complications such as blindness and kidney failure during their lifetimes,
and they have higher rates of diabetes complications and heart disease than older adults with type 2 diabetes.Web Link
