“Type 2 diabetes in youth clearly differs from type 1 diabetes and more closely resembles the pathophysiology in adults: insulin resistance and nonautoimmune β-cell failure. However, youth-onset type 2 diabetes displays unique aspects, such as rapidly progressive β-cell decline and accelerated development of diabetes complications. Treatment options for youth-onset type 2 diabetes are inadequate, limited to two approved drugs (insulin and metformin) and the promotion of healthy lifestyles. Comprehensive, coordinated, and innovative strategies for the investigation, prevention, and treatment of youth-onset type 2 diabetes are urgently needed.”
