Overweight Siblings of Children With Type 2 Diabetes Likely to Have Abnormal Blood Sugar Levels

nce. Obesity decreases insulin sensitivity, as does puberty, when all adolescents experience a period of relative insulin resistance. In obese adolescents already at risk of developing type 2 diabetes, the increase in insulin resistance during puberty may be enough to unmask disease. Family history is also important; 74-100 percent of children with type 2 diabetes have a first- or second-degree relative who also has the condition.

Not all children with a family history of type 2 diabetes, insulin resistance or obesity develop type 2 diabetes, cautions Dr. Magge.

This could also help to identify children who might benefit from participation in future type 2 diabetes prevention studies.

Dr. Magge's coauthors were: Nicolas Stettler, M.D., M.S.C.E., Abbas Jawad, M.Sc., Ph.D., and Lorraine E. Levitt Katz, M.D. all of The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and the University of Pennsylvania.
