Summary The epidemiology of diabetes in children and adolescents is changing, which carries profound implications for how clinicians screen, assess, and manage the world-wide epidemic of this chronic disease. Over the past few years, as the incidence of childhood obesity has dramatically increased, so has the emergence of Type 2 diabetes in young people, as well as the incidence of diabetic diagnoses anomalies that do not conform to the standard type1 or type 2 classification models. This will be the first book of its kind to address this critical paradigm shift, and offer insights and recommendations as to how clinicians can better care for this growing patient population
