Type II diabetes is the most common form of diabetes. Unfortunately, it's also under diagnosed among the group that's most at risk.
Among children, type II diabetes is most common in kids who are overweight, of non-Caucasian descent, and have a family history of diabetes. If you're the parent of a child who has these risk factors, and are concerned your child may have diabetes, Spokane's Rockwood Research Center is here to help. During the month of November, Rockwood will offer pre-screening for children for type II diabetes at no cost. Just call the Rockwood Research Center at 509-342-3180 to schedule a pre-screening.
