Diabetes: quantitative determination of Intact Proinsulin

Diabetes in children and teens...

Over the last 30 years, the number of cases of childhood diabetes has increased threefold.

Type-1 diabetes (diabetes caused by a defect in the immune system which leads to destruction of the insulin-producing cells) is the most common form of diabetes in children and has traditionally been considered as the only type of infant diabetes except in rare instances. In fact, type-1 diabetes is often called "juvenile diabetes".

However, recent findings suggest that somewhere between 8-45% of newly diagnosed children with diabetes may indeed have Type-2 diabetes (insulin deficiency due to other factors).
