The majority of children diagnosed with diabetes have Type 1, which is an autoimmune disease and has nothing to do with obesity. There is no known cause of Type 1 diabetes and at this point no one can prevent it. There is a huge myth in this world that children get diabetes from "eating too much sugar," and that is not the case in Type 1 (again, the majority of children have Type 1). It IS caused by the immune system preventing the pancreas from producing insulin, and no one can survive without insulin. When the body does not produce insulin, then the person with Type 1 diabetes needs injected insulin.
EVERYONE needs to learn to eat a healthy, well-balanced diet. Kids with Type 1 diabetes can eat NORMALLY like everyone else, but they need to count carbs and take insulin for it because of the fact that their pancreas does not produce insulin.
The book might have great information and be written by someone who has true knowledge of Type 1 diabetes, but if so, the author wouldn't be happy to have THIS particular statement used to promote their book. If the book deals with Type 2 diabetes in children, then the title of the book should specify that.
