Young People

This section contains information on School Action and Management Plans and our children's camps. Resources for Young People with diabetes please follow this link.

Diabetes can and does occur at any age. Type 1 diabetes is more commonly diagnosed in younger people but it can occur at any age. Type 2 diabetes, the more common form of diabetes, is increasingly occurring in younger age groups.

In type 1 diabetes, the pancreas cannot produce enough insulin because the cells that actually make the insulin have been destroyed by the body’s own immune system. The insulin has to be replaced in another way, which is why, if you have type 1 diabetes, you must receive insulin every day by injections or insulin pump.

Unlike someone with type 1 diabetes, with type 2 diabetes the body still produces insulin, but it is not produced in the amount the body needs and it does not work effectively.

If you have any questions relating to young people with diabetes, schools and diabetes or our children's camps please contact Traci Lonergan, Youth Program Coordinator via email.
