Over the last three decades there has been a steady increase in childhood and adolescent type II diabetes. One of the issues for the cause of the increase in this form of diabetes is obesity. Obesity is not always a factor for type II diabetes, but it is one the children and adolescents. A reason that this is also a problem is there is not enough research or data for treatments or way to help prevent type II diabetes in this young age range. When studies are done it is mainly on children in of the same backgrounds and ethnicities. Researches and physicians both agree that more information is need to educate and treat the young population. While more information is useful, it would be helpful to start early education, before diabetes has a chance to start in childhood. Exercise and nutrition programs can be started to help parents and children be aware of all the possible dangers that diabetes can cause to the body. These programs can also show the other diseases that can develop form having this avoidable and curable disease.
The other more common type of Diabetes is Type II, affecting more than 13.3 million people in the United States. Type II Diabetes is a metabolic disorder resulting from the body's inability to make enough or properly use insulin. Sometimes Type II can be due to prolonged obesity when a rise in the level of blood sugar inactivates tissue components that are targets for insulin, consequentially killing off the cells needed to transport the sugar. Type II diabetes is most prevalent in adults over forty, but most people do not recognize the disease until they develop one of it's life threatening complications. Type II has the same symptoms as
Accompanying genetics, environmental factors, such as lack of exercise and obesity, play major roles in causing type II diabetes.
Description Type II diabetes is a mixture of both genetic and environmental factors. It is a metabolic disorder that affects the way the body processes blood sugar due to the fact that the body cannot produce enough insulin. The victim often feels fatigued and thirsty that leads to frequent urination. Obesity is believed to be the primary cause of Type II diabetes to those who are genetically predisposed. Based on the American Diabetes Association, non-Hispanic blacks are second in being diagnosed with diabetes with 13.2%. Type II diabetes can come with many effects
Type 2 diabetes is a self-caused disease that prevents your body from using and producing insulin correctly which leads to high levels of sugar in the blood. When people consume too much or too little sugar, it affects their insulin resistance, which causes the pancreas to not maintain the right amount of insulin to keep the body's
Type 2 diabetes is a form of diabetes that is insulin resistant and it often results from excess body weight and physical inactivity.
Teens and children in North America are starting to suffer from diabetes at such an earlier age. This disease tends to be more common with children that are overweight. “..type 2 diabetes affect about 186,000 youth under age 20.”(Kaufman ,et al., 2009) Diabetes is very common when people create a diet full on unhealthy foods, no portion control and limited to no physical activity at all. Maintaining a healthy diet but also lifestyle is key when it comes to lowering your risk for diabetes. “Careful ongoing
Obesity, lack of exercise, some ethnicity's, and age are just a few of the triggers for Type 2 diabetes. It is also triggered by genetics, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. The greatest cause of Type 2 diabetes is unhealthy eating habits. People who do not eat properly and have daily exercise are highly susceptible to Type 2
America is a melting pot of immigrants. First, the pilgrims, the Italians, the Polish came to America for opportunity. More recently, people from the Philippines, Syria, and Mexico have emigrated from their homes for a better future. Latinos are the largest minority in the US-making up more than 13.7% of
(Staff, Mayo Clinic 2016) There are three main causes to developing Type 2 Diabetes. The most common is insulin resistance. Insulin is a hormone that comes from the pancreas. The pancreas secretes this hormone to the bloodstream, where it then circulates to give sugar to the cells within our body. Glucose is extremely important, it is the main source of energy for our cells that make up our muscles and other tissues. Glucose is able to enter the cells with the help of insulin. Insulin lowers the amount of sugar in your bloodstream so as the sugar levels drop, the secretion of insulin from your pancreas does as well. However, in Type 2 diabetes the process does not always work as it should and sugar often builds up in your blood stream. (Staff, Mayo Clinic 2016) You do not have to be insulin resistant to develop this type of diabetes though. A second cause could be your family history and genetics, as it can be hereditary. Just because your mother or father had this type of diabetes does not mean that you are guaranteed to develop it, but you become much more likely to. As of right now researchers are not sure which genes carry the risk, but research is being done to figure out the genetic
Like type one diabetes, type two diabetes both have genetic and acquired factors. Among the acquired factors obesity and physical inactivity are the leading causes. The metabolic abnormalities that lead to type two diabetes include insufficient secretes of insulin by the pancreas. Peripheral insulin resistance, and increased glucose output by the liver in the type 2 diabetes hyperglycemia develops despite the availability of insulin. Type 2 Diabetes usually manifest in adults older than forty. Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus can often be controlled by diet, exercise, and oral hyperglycemic agent (oral glucose). People with type 2 Diabetes Mellitus may or may not require insulin
Diabetes is known to have a major psychological impact on adults and an even greater affect on adolescents. Different types of therapies have been developed to support the patient as well as their families to deal with this impact. These include Behavioral Family Systems Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
A case study onset of type2 diabetes in youth. An 11 year old child named R.Y in American Indian Heritage was identified with type 2 diabetes during a routine physical check-up in school. Her mother shifted her home from a stress life of domestic violence and finances, unstable house, inadequate parent supervision to her childhood community. Before they shifted, child establishes poor grades in school, oppositional behaviour and moreover gain in weight. The child mother think that R.Y. identified diabetes causes such as physical abuses, diabetes in pregnancy or inequality in social living. The family return to native American community which proves beneficial to R.Y., In such a way, that it boost the school grades , relations, problem
The Effects of Exercise on Youth with Type 2 Diabetes Missouri State University HLH 752 Introduction Background What was once thought to be found only among adults has become one of the most common chronic diseases among children in the United States. Ordinarily, when diabetes strikes during childhood it is assumed to be type 1. The SEARCH for Diabetes in Youth Study began in 2000 and has provided the most comprehensive estimates of the prevalence and incidence of type 2 diabetes among youth less than 20 years of age in the US (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2014). The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports that annually, an estimated 18,436 youth are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, and 5,089 youth are diagnosed with type 2 among youth. In the last two decades, type 2 diabetes, has been reported among U.S. children and adolescents with increasing frequency. Disease researchers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention made the prediction that one in three children born in the United States in 2000 will likely develop type 2 diabetes sometime in their lifetime unless they get more exercise and improve their diets, particularly for Latino children (CDC, 2014). Without changes in diet and exercise, their odds of developing diabetes as they grow older was about 50-50.
Type 2 Diabetes in children and adolescents is an emerging epidemic within the last 20 years. Diabetes is one of the most common chronic diseases in children and adolescents; about 151,000 people below the age of 20 years have diabetes (CDC, 2009). There has been an increase in the amount
