  3. 3. Diabetes in Children & Adolescents • Type 1 Diabetes is one of the most common chronic diseases to affect children. • It strikes at any age, even babies aren’t safe. • If not detected early enough, the disease can be fatal or result in serious brain damage. • It is an autoimmune disease and cannot be stopped or prevented. • Yet diabetes in a children is often completely overlooked: it can be misdiagnosed as a flu or not diagnosed at all, until the damage is done.

Juvenile Diabetes in Poland • Poland has an increase of new Juvenile Diabetes cases; This year alone we will have more than 3 500 newly diagnosed babies, children and teenagers. • Yet there is no National program in place, to provide them with a safe environment upon their return to school or nursery. • Each nanny, teacher, sports coach, or a school nurse should know all the risks, and learn how to care for a child with diabetes.
