Carlos Del Águila, Director of Childhood Diabetes Mellitus, who participated in the World Day for the Blood Diabetes, said that juvenile diabetes has exponentially increased at the national level.
"In the nineties, we had two cases per year, this time in the first quarter of this year there were 35 cases," explained the national radio specialist.
In this regard, he suggested improving the child's lifestyle with parental support.
"It's important to have a healthy diet, exercise and sleep." A good pediatrician can determine when a child becomes obese and prevents the disease.
The diabetes screening campaign at Hospital del Niño de Breña Hospital was free of charge. The results were delivered promptly.
