Type 1 Diabetes

Raising Awareness of the 4 T’s of Diabetes.

As many as one in four children are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when they are in diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) – a life threatening condition that requires urgent medical treatment. For children under five years old, it’s as many as one in three.

Diabetes UK want to stop this happening.

By making sure children and young people get a quick diagnosis and prompt treatment to manage their diabetes, we can then avoid them becoming seriously ill with DKA.

That’s why Diabetes UK is raising awareness of the most common signs to lookout for – Click here to see the Guide ‘Could your child have Type 1 Diabetes’

Diabetes UK believe that everyone who knows a child, of any age should be aware of the 4T’s of diabetes, remember them and know what to do if they spot them.
