Atypical antipsychotic drugs may be linked to diabetes and other blood sugar disorders in children. Children are commonly prescribed Zyprexa for schizophrenia, ADHD, and bed-wetting. Juvenile Diabetes, also referred to as Type 1 Diabetes, inflicts children quickly, and brings an endless risk of damaging complications. Juvenile diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which the body’s immune system attacks and demolishes the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas. Each year approximately 13,000 children are diagnosed with diabetes in the U.S., or 35 children each and every day.

Individuals who have Juvenile Diabetes (Type 1) have to take multiple insulin injections on a daily basis or regularly infuse insulin through a pump, and test their blood sugar by pricking their fingers for blood six or more times each day. While trying to balance insulin doses with their food intake and daily activities, people with this form of diabetes must always be prepared for serious hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) and hyperglycemic (high blood sugar) reactions, both of which can be life-limiting and life threatening.

Insulin does not cure diabetes or prevent its side effects.  Side effects include: kidney failure, blindness, nerve damage, heart disease, amputations, stroke, high blood pressure, blindness, gum disease and heart attack. Warning signs of Juvenile Diabetes include: extreme thirst, frequent urination, drowsiness or lethargy, increased appetite, sudden weight loss for no reason, sudden vision changes, sugar in urine, fruity odor on breath, heavy or labored breathing and stupor or unconsciousness.

Untreated juvenile diabetes can cause a person to go into a coma and can even be fatal.
