Type 2 Diabetes Information

California Education Code 49452.7 requires all incoming 7th grade students to receive information regarding type 2 diabetes. Until a few years ago, type 2 diabetes was rare in children, but is becoming more common, especially for overweight youth. Risk factors associated with increased risk for type 2 diabetes are being overweight, family history of diabetes, inactivity and certain specific racial/ethnic groups. Healthy lifestyle choices can help prevent the development of this and other diseases. Visit California Department of Education website for information sheets in multiple languages:
