Especially for children with diagnosed with type 1 diabetes their journey with the condition will last decades affecting not only themselves but those around them. This is also true for patients with type 2 diabetes and how they confront these challenges can affect their life outside of diabetes as well.

Marisa E. Hilliard, PhD, from the Baylor College of Medicine discussed this topic during the annual meeting of the American Diabetes Association in New Orleans.
