Diagnosis and Symptoms
Question from Warner Robins, Georgia, USA:
Is it hard to detect diabetes in younger children?
Not usually, because the presentation is not very subtle. Many young children have a very short period of symptoms such as drinking excessively and passing too much urine before decompensating and becoming obviously ill with DKA [diabetic ketoacidosis].
