Question from Kentucky, USA:
My 13 year old sister developed type 1 diabetes at age 10. What are the consequences that developing diabetes has caused on her organs becoming fully developed?
Getting diabetes at age 10 does not affect the development of the organs unless the blood sugars are very poorly controlled.
