[IPk] Teenagers with diabetes: management challenges



http://www.racgp.org.au/afp/downloads/pdf/june2006/20060605cameron.pdf


During adolescence major hormonal, neuro-maturational, emotional and
psychosocial changes occur within a relatively short time interval. The
additional burden of living with a chronic disease such as type1 diabetes can
further add to the potential for instability.

OBJECTIVE
This article discusses the specific management issues facing diabetic patients
and their doctors in the teenage years.
