ABSTRACT
The article reports on the increasing rates of diabetes among children in England. One survey shows that almost 23,000 children and young people under 18 suffer from diabetes. It also found that majority of the affected young people have type-1 diabetes, while 1.5 percent have type-2 diabetes due to the increasing rate of obesity. Dr. Rowan Hillson points out that understanding this number of affected children will allow them to grow up unobstructed by their condition.
