Help Children Prevent Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes is increasing in young people. In 1990, fewer than 4 percent of children were diagnosed with this disease. Today, 30 to 50 percent of children are at risk for it, say health experts at the University of Washington. This type of diabetes is associated with obesity and a sedentary lifestyle. Helping children maintain a healthful weight, along with exercising, can help prevent the disease.
