One of the most common chronic illnesses in youngsters, Type 1 diabetes can be diagnosed as early as 6-months old. The symptoms for the illness are often overlooked as they can also be attributed to the flu, growth spurts and results of thirsty days. According to Children's Health, "It thus pays to keep an eye out for those relatively mild early symptoms, including previously 'dry' at night children who begin wetting the bed, and if you suspect there's any chance your baby might be diabetic, request that a blood-sugar or urine-sugar test be performed."
