Once your doctor analyzes your child’s symptoms and medical history, he or she will order a variety of tests to confirm the diagnosis, including:
- Glycosylated hemoglobin test.
- Fasting blood sugar test.
- Random blood sugar test.
- Oral glucose tolerance test.
Treatment for type 2 diabetes must be permanent throughout your child’s life, as it is an incurable condition. The therapeutic plan includes:
- Prescription of insulin and some drugs.
- Bariatric surgery for weight loss.
- Eating a healthy diet.
- Exercising regularly.
- Permanent glucose check and control.
As your child grows, his or her therapeutic plan will be modified to adapt to his or her needs and achieve the best results. Your doctor and nutritionist will intervene to keep a stable glucose level and minimize the risk of serious complications.
