This year, to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the discovery of insulin in Canada, Brampton South MP Sonia Sidhu will be hosting a World Diabetes Day flag raising with the City of Brampton.
This event will take place at 12:00 Noon at Brampton City Hall, on Sunday, November 14, 2021.
Mayor Patrick Brown, Federal Colleagues, counterparts from other levels of government, representatives from National Organizations such as Diabetes Canada, JDRF, community leaders and patients will be attending the event. Attendees will be able to get tested for diabetes at Dynacare Canada’s mobile testing clinic during and after the event.
Are children able to have diabetes? Certainly, and this is why Type I diabetes has been called juvenile diabetes. A growing number of children are developing Type I (insulin resistant or adult-onset) diabetes. Nov. is also diabetes awareness month.
You may wonder if children can be born with diabetes, and it is not possible, and in that case, it might not be possible to have a viable pregnancy. There are sporadic cases where toddlers or infants have Type I diabetes.
Type 1 diabetes is a condition that affects the beta cells of the pancreas and results in the death of the pancreas. This can be due to genetic risk factors and an appropriate trigger. However, in many cases, a trigger cannot easily be identified.
There are many cases of type 2 diabetes in children who live in areas where obesity is an epidemic. This is due to the increased incidence of childhood obesity and progressive loss of beta-cell function due to being overweight/obese and genetics.
Diabetes can be carried by a woman who is pregnant, and the best way to treat diabetes is to do so at least three months before conception. During pregnancy, insulin in type 2 diabetics should be administered. However, new mothers must watch out for hypoglycemic episodes because insulin levels drop dramatically after birth. Usually, insulin dosage is cut by half immediately.
To optimize your diabetes during and after pregnancy, you need to see a competent, knowledgeable doctor.
There are no reason diabetes increases in children, and there is no cure. The child who is the victim must continue to take insulin throughout his life. There is good news: the treatment is now more effective in living better lives. Remember that type 1 diabetes is common in children.
Type 1 diabetes can also be called insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, diabetes mellitus, or diabetes mellitus. This is a chronic condition where the pancreas produces little to no insulin. Insulin is a hormone that helps sugar (glucose) enter cells to make energy.
Type 1 diabetes symptoms can be very apparent quickly. They include weight loss, persistent hunger and thirst, frequent urination, fatigue, blurred vision, dry throat, dry throat, frequent urination, frequent urination, frequent urination, frequent urination, frequent urination, frequent urination, and frequent urination. Sudden unusual behaviour (acting “drunk”): Breath that smells sweet or fruity, excessive thirst, heavy breathing, large appetite, difficulty breathing (infants and toddlers may have more diapers than usual), ongoing, intense thirst.
The question now is: Which children or people are more at risk for type 1 diabetes? Type 1 diabetes is more common in those who have a sibling or parent with the disease. The risk of developing this disease is higher even if specific genes are present in your body, and it may be more dangerous to live in a certain area than others.
This disease is also more likely to be caused by viral infections. The Epstein-Barr virus viruses, such as the coxsackievirus, mumps virus, or cytoplasmic virus, infect islet cells and destroy their immune systems. These viruses are often fatal to children.
* Children born to mothers who were less than 25 years of age.
* Jaundice is a condition that can be born.
* A person who had a breathing problem shortly after giving birth.
The question is: What precautions can be taken to live a healthier life if the disease isn’t treated? Keep these things in mind: Always take the prescribed medicine. A healthy, balanced diet is important, and exercise regularly. A tag should be worn that indicates you have diabetes.
A glucose test kit is a must, significantly if your blood sugar levels fluctuate. You and your family members must be familiar with how the kit works.
Diabetes can lead to mouth infections. Pay attention to your oral health. Use non-alcoholic, gentle brushing toothpaste.
What complications can diabetes cause in children? Diabetes in children must be controlled, and insulin is usually recommended. These children can grow like normal children if their sugar levels are under control. Insulins can cause low sugar levels, and this is something that children need to be aware of. It is important to eat right and exercise regularly.
Complications if sugar is not controlled are Retinopathy, Cardiac and Kidney problems.
Insulin is one of the greatest gifts our country gave to the world said, Sonia Sidhu.
In 2021, the House of Commons of Canada recognized this milestone by supporting Bill C-237, introducing a National Framework for Diabetes.
