Ask your doctor. There are 2 main types of diabetes. One is Type 1 which was previously known as juvenile diabetes but is also known to develop in adults. Type 1 occurs in only 10% of people with diabetes. Type 2 diabetes, the most common form, has traditionally been thought of as adult onset. Unfortunately, because of the rise in childhood obesity we are now seeing children develop Type 2 diabetes.
