Every year over 13,000 American children under the age of 30 are diagnosed with type 1 (juvenile) diabetes. Watch for these warning signs: extreme thirst, increased appetite, frequent urination, sudden vision changes, sudden weight loss, sugar in urine, drowsiness, heavy, labored breathing, sweet breath odor, and/or unconsciousness. If your child has one or more of these symptoms, contact a doctor. A portion of the proceeds from the sales of this piece in 2007 went to childhood diabetes research.
