From Mississippi, USA:

What are the symptoms of diabetes in very young children (age 1 year)?


Symptoms of diabetes in a young child can include: soaking diapers often; unquenchable thirst; extreme irritability; and often failure to follow a predicted grow pattern (height and weight).


[Editor's comment: The symptoms of diabetes in older kids and adults are listed at Symptoms of Diabetes at this website and Symptoms of Diabetes at the Diabetes Monitor website. WWQ]
