Talking to Your Pediatrician about Type 1 Diabetes

Diabetes in Lee's SummitThe symptoms of type 1 diabetes can develop at any age, but the onset is most likely to occur during childhood. Early diagnosis can make controlling the disease easier and reduce the risk of complications. Is your child at risk for type 1 diabetes? Here are some of the things you may want to discuss with your pediatrician.

Be sure your pediatrician knows if there is a history of type 1 diabetes or other autoimmune diseases in your family. This information will help your family doctor make decisions about screening frequency. Ask your pediatrician what symptoms you should be alert to, and tell the doctor if you notice unexplained weight loss, an increase in urination, or extreme thirst, which can all be symptoms of diabetes.

At Lee’s Summit Physicians Group, our pediatric specialists provide everything from routine immunizations to management of chronic conditions like type 1 diabetes. Make an appointment for your child today by calling our Raintree Pediatrics office at (816) 525-4700, Blue Springs Pediatrics at (816) 554-6520, or Lee’s Summit Pediatrics at (816) 524-5600.

Help Your Child Beat Back Pain

Adults aren’t the only ones vulnerable to back pain. Many children need to see a pediatrician for this kind of pain as well, which is often triggered by heavy backpacks. You can help your child avoid back pain by teaching him or her the right way to carry a schoolbag.

Watch this video to learn the safe way to carry a backpack. The pack should rest in the middle of the back, and your child should carry it using both straps. Make sure the bag doesn’t weigh more than 10 percent of your child’s body weight.
