From Fort Myers, Florida, USA:

My 15 year old has been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. I need to know what can she eat? What does this really mean being type 2?


It will be best for you to discuss with the diabetes team the treatment for your child. For people with Type 2 diabetes, sometimes medications are used, sometimes not. Weight loss is indicated, usually by a combination of increased activity and decreased food intake. Specifics would need to be discussed with the diabetes team.
