(Pre)diabetes type 2 in children
Children with type 2 diabetes are very rare in the Netherlands. According to the Diabetes Fund, there are only a few hundred children with type 2 diabetes in the Netherlands. Unfortunately, this group is growing faster because children are getting heavier, and the number of children with type 2 diabetes is increasing proportionally. Obesity and heredity play by far the most important role in children with type 2 diabetes.
In the Netherlands, medication is used in children with type 2 diabetes to immediately achieve safe blood glucose levels. Subsequently, work must be done on a healthy lifestyle, which mainly requires adjustments to diet and exercise. As a result, a child will lose weight, so that the diabetes medication can also be reduced.
