As only 10% of diabetes cases are type 1, 90% could be preventable.
There is a growing incidence of type 2 diabetes in children and young people from high-risk populations, the Canadian Diabetes Association says. Recent data suggests an American child born in 2000 stands a one in three chance of being diagnosed with diabetes in his or her lifetime.
