Children's Diabetes Foundation

Diabetes is one of the leading killers in the United States. The most common form of the disease is adult onset diabetes. Adult onset diabetes is often the result of lack of exercise and poor diets. (Please note the thinly veiled hint that we should eat better and exercise more.)

The worst form of the disease, however, strikes the most innocent of victims—our children. Victims of childhood diabetes must take multiple injections of insulin each day just to stay alive.

Adult onset diabetes is generally the result of gradual weakening of the pancreas. The pancreas can still produce insulin. As such it can be controlled with strict diets and medication. Type 1 (insulin dependent childhood diabetes) generally involves a complete failure of the pancreas to produce insulin. As such it is much more severe and requires more intense care.

The Children's Diabetes Foundation is an organization established by Mr. and Mrs. Marvin Davis in 1977 to support research into childhood diabetes and to provide clinical and educational programs for children with this horrible disease.

To help educate people on Childhood Diabetes, the foundations published the work Understanding Diabetes by Dr. Peter Chase.

The web site has information on their organization, fundraising events and educational materials. The site includes several low sugar recipes. The recipe page seems to concentrate on deserts.

The Children's Diabetes Foundation raises funds for the Barbara Davis Center for Childhood Diabetes.

Diabetes is a serious condition that affects 18 million Americans. 2 million have the most serious type 1 diabetes. It is disease that can strike just about anyone and should be parts of the discussions between you and your doctor.
