Juvenile Diabetes

Juvenile Diabetes is a colloquial name used to descripe Type 1 Diabetes. As the majority of people with T1D are diagnosed before the age of 19 and Type 2 Diabetes is very uncommon in children. T1D is often referred to as Juvenille Diabetes. The term can be misleading as you cannot ‘grow out’ of T1D and of the 120,000 people in Australia living with T1D 85% are over the age of 18.
