Diabetes among juveniles has increased exponentially at the national level due to bad habits, said Carlos Del Aguil, Head of the Department of Endocrinology of the Children's Hospital, as part of the World Diabetes Day.
"In the 1990s, we had two cases annually, today there were 35 cases in this first quarter," explained the National Radio Specialist.
In this regard, he recommended improving the way of life of children with the support of parents.
"It's important to have healthy nutrition, physical activity and respect sleep hours." In a child's check, a pediatrician can detect when the child becomes obesity and prevents the illness.
In the hospital part of Nino de Brena, the diabetes screening campaign was conducted free of charge. Results are delivered immediately.
