Causes of diabetes in children

consumption of artificial sugar 

Most parents feed things like cookies, candies, and pastries to their children. Due to this, the risk of diabetes in children increases significantly. This happens due to the artificial sugar present in it.

Unhealthy foods

Parents living in cities do not stop their children from eating junk food, unhealthy snacks, and high-calorie foods. Due to this, the risk of getting diabetes increases significantly.

Decreased physical activity 


Parents who do not take care of the physical activity of their children have a high risk of obesity and diabetes in their children. Nowadays children spend most of their time on mobile phones, TV, and playing video games, due to which their physical activity has reduced. 

Lack of awareness 

Many times parents are not aware of the risk factors and early symptoms of diabetes in children, due to which the child has to face serious consequences of high sugar.
