           SUBJECT:   Type 1 diabetes awareness


          SOURCE:    Author


          DIGEST:  This resolution encourages all health care practitioners with  
          children under their care to discuss the warning signs and  
          symptoms of Type 1 diabetes with the parents or guardians of  
          each child at least once annually at well-child care visits from  
          birth to 5 years of age.
          ANALYSIS:  This resolution makes the following legislative  
          findings:


          1)Diabetes is a chronic disease that affects an estimated 29.1  
            million Americans, or 9.3 percent of the population, on a  
            daily basis.  Approximately 3.8 million people in California  
            are living with diabetes, and it is estimated that over one  
            million Californians are undiagnosed.


          2)Diabetes costs an estimated $37.1 billion in California each  
            year.


          3)Type 1 diabetes, previously called juvenile-onset diabetes,  
            occurs when the body does not produce insulin, a hormone that  
            is necessary to convert sugar, or glucose, into energy.  Type  
            1 diabetes is the third most common auto-immune disease found

                                                                    Page  2



            among children.


          4)Early diagnosis of Type 1 diabetes can help prevent diabetic  
            ketoacidosis, a potentially fatal condition that develops from  
            high blood glucose levels.  


          5)Education concerning Type 1 diabetes is critical to raising  
            awareness and diagnosing and treating this condition  
            effectively.  With the help of insulin therapy and other  
            treatments, young children and adolescents can learn to manage  
            their condition and live long, healthy lives.


          This resolution encourages all health care practitioners with  
          children under their care to discuss the warning signs and  
          symptoms of Type 1 diabetes with the parents or guardians of  
          each child at least once annually at well-child care visits from  
          birth to 5 years of age.
