2 What Do We Know About Type 2 Diabetes in Youth? QuestionWhat Do We Know About Type 2 Diabetes in Youth?
3 Prevalence of Diabetes and IFG in US Adolescents – NHANES 1999-2002 Type 2 Diabetes0.5% of adolescents have diabetes71% type 1 and 29% type 2Determined by insulin use vs no insulin use39,005 US teens with T2DImpaired Fasting Glucose11% had IFG2,769,736 teens with IFGDiabetes Increased 41% from 4.9 to 6.9/1000 from 1997 to adultsDuncan, Arch Pediatr Adolesc Med 2006;160:523; Geiss, Am J Prevent Med 2006;30:371
4 Is it an epidemic?The incidence is increasing and probably underestimatedPopulation based estimates indicate an ~10-fold increase in incident cases over the past years8% to 43% of all new cases of diabetes in the United States depending on ethnicityThe SEARCH TrialWhat about prevalence??Bloomgarden ZT. Diabetes Care. 2004;27: Centers for Disease Control. Diabetes Fact Sheet. 2005
5 Controversies as to the Nature of this Epidemic Difficult to recruit for the TODAY trial13 centers across the countryPresence of antibodiesThe SEARCH Trial19,000 new patients with T1D4,100 new patients with T2DType 1a+ AbFCP < 0.8 ng/mlType 2- AbFCP > 2.9 ng/mlHybrid

23 Question What Are Treatment Targets in Youth with Type 2 Diabetes? Are they the same as in adults?
24 TREATMENT GOALS Glucose control, HbA1c <7% Goals (Diabetes Care, 2000)FGPPBedA1c <7.0TREATMENT GOALSGlucose control, HbA1c <7%Eliminate symptoms of hyperglycemiaMaintenance of reasonable body weightImprove cardiovascular risk factorsReduce microvascular complicationsImprovement in physical and emotional well-being
25 Treatment Issues Self-monitoring of blood glucose Fasting and postprandialFrequency depends on regimenMedical Nutrition TherapyDiabetes EducationInvolves familyDirect family supervision produces better glycemic control outcomes1Lifestyle CoachingPreconception counselingImmunizationsDental careSmoking and alcohol counseling1.

41 National Diabetes Education Program’s Tip Sheets for Kids with Type 2 In terms of publications, these colorful tip sheets provide basic information about type 2 diabetes and encourage young people to take steps to manage the disease for a long and healthy life.Written in simple language, the tip sheets are helpful for anyone who has type 2 diabetes and their loved ones. Topics include:What is Diabetes?Be Active.Stay at a Healthy Weight.Eat Healthy Foods.These tip sheets also are available online on the NDEP website.Additional tip sheets are in development covering dealing with diabetes and diabetes prevention.What is Diabetes?Be ActiveStay at a Healthy WeightEat Healthy Foods
42 Helping the Student with Diabetes Succeed The school guide is called Helping the Student with Diabetes Succeed. A Guide for School Personnel.NDEP took on this project because of reports from NDEP partner organizations and their constituents of the lack of awareness and knowledge on how to manage kids with diabetes during the school day and the discrimination against children with diabetes in the school setting.Numerous NDEP partners joined NDEP to create and pretest the school guide.
43 Conclusion Increased incidence Difficult to distinguish from type 1 Occurs at the time of intense insulin resistance due to pubertyDoes not appear to be preceded by long asymptomatic periodMore insulin deficiency and requirement for exogenous insulin earlySafety and efficacy of therapeutic agentsRapid progression of co-morbidities and complications
