Childhood Obesity and Its Consequences: Nutrition, Activity and the Role of the Health Care Provider. Jan 2002

Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) has reached epidemic proportions - particularly among
African-American and Hispanic children living in poverty. For most newly diagnosed children,
T2DM is associated with obesity. The Children=s Health Fund is committed to public health
action to prevent overweight and obesity, and in so doing prevent T2DM. For children at risk, we
must develop more effective screening and earlier intervention to limit the often devastating
consequences of diabetes, which may include eye disorders such as blindness, cataracts and
glaucoma; circulatory disorders and heart disease; nerve damage; toe, foot and leg amputations;
and kidney failure.
