Young people who were diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in their early teens had an "alarming" high rate of diabetes-associated complications by the time they were in their mid-20s, reported a new research.
Moreover, among more than 500 young participants in the Longitudinal Outcomes in Youth With Type 2 Diabetes (TODAY-2) study, five died of various causes, mostly related to their diabetes within about 7.5 years of being diagnosed.
The findings were discussed at the ongoing American Diabetes Association (ADA) 2019 Scientific Sessions.
