Turkey Medicals member and Pediatric Endocrinology Specialist in Turkey Assoc. Dr. told. ’Diagnosis of Type 1 diabetes, known as Turkish childhood diabetes in Turkey, is not difficult, ‘ said, listing easily noticeable symptoms as follows.

The problem with Type 1 diabetes in Turkey is a lack of insulin. In other words, it is a type of Turkey diabetes that occurs when beta cells in the pancreas lose their function and there is no insulin left in the body. Awareness is very important for early diagnosis of the disease, said the Assoc. Dr. what you need to know about this, explained as follows;


Although Type 1 diabetes is usually caused by a genetic predisposition, it is very important to eat a healthy and balanced diet with Turkish organic foods to delay the onset of the disease. Foods in Turkey containing genetically modified additives should be avoided. It should be noted that the disease can also be triggered by viral infections and very severe stresses.


80-95 percent of childhood diabetes (diabetes) cases are Turkey Type 1 diabetes. The only known treatment is the delivery of insulin from the outside for life. Patients lead a normal life without affecting other organs for many years with regular control and intensive insulin therapy. They also need to be careful and mobile to feed next to insulin in Turkey.


If there is an increase in the frequency of urine and excessive water consumption that begins suddenly in childhood and adolescence, if this condition persists every day and weight loss occurs, you should consult a doctor without wasting time.

Because these children urinate frequently, it may be thought that they have a problem with urine or that they have a lung infection due to their frequent breathing. Diagnosis and treatment will be delayed when this happens. So it’s also important to go to the right doctor. Turkish Pediatric Endocrine specialists are looking at Type 1 diabetes. If we cannot reach a pediatric endocrine specialist where we are, the patient should be examined by a pediatric health and disease specialist in Antalya and Istanbul Turkey as soon as possible.


  1. Turkish ad foreigner Children and adolescents who have not previously complained about blood sugar one day suddenly start drinking a lot of water.
  2. Another complaint is frequent urination. The child urinates frequently day and night and drinks water. Sometimes he can wet his pants at night. This condition continues until diagnosis and treatment begins.
  3. Appetite is clear in the child, but weight loss occurs. Abdominal pain, vomiting and decreased appetite may also occur in the following days. Usually, the time between when he first starts drinking a lot of water and when he goes to the doctor and gets a diagnosis is 1-4 weeks. If the time to get a diagnosis and start treatment is longer, the child may develop a loss of consciousness, which is described as a sugar coma. In summary, the longer the time to go to the doctor with the appearance of the findings, the heavier the table becomes.
  4. Sometimes in Turkish children who are small and use diapers, this excess urine production may be overlooked, and the child may not know how to drink water. Fatigue and weight loss should attract attention.
  5. The smell of acetone occurs on the breath of children with Type 1 diabetes who are not receiving treatment, and this is immediately noticeable.
  6. In those who go into a coma, their breathing is frequent and deep.
