Thus, the following points should be kept in mind for an early detection of diabetes which would help in the child’s healthy growth:

  • Excessive urination: This might result in dehydration. The child might often feel thirsty than usual.
  • Excessive hunger: Since the blood sugar has been flushed out of the body and not absorbed for energy, the baby might feel hungry very often. Also, the child loses weight due to lack of nutrients.
  • Undue fatigue, drowsiness and weakness might occur in juveniles
