From Helotes, Texas, USA:

Is there a form of diabetes that affects only children and will gradually decrease or become non-existent as their age increases? It would be something similar to gestational diabetes in women.


Sorry, but there is no such disease. Please read more about the types of diabetes at Classification and Diagnosis of Diabetes.
