Early-onset and youth-onset type 2 diabetes: new factsheet

As part of its “At a Glance” series, Diabetes & Primary Care has published a factsheet on early-onset type 2 diabetes and its subset, youth-onset type 2 diabetes, which affects children and adolescents. The personal and public health implications of developing type 2 diabetes early in life are significant. While its prevalence in people under the age of 45 is still relatively low, it is steadily increasing.
Created for healthcare professionals, the new factsheet provides essential information on the characteristics and implications of these conditions, as well as how they can be managed in primary care.
