Juvenile diabetes is a chronic condition that impacts how your body processes glucose. It can be managed through medication and lifestyle changes, but the best treatment is the one that works best for your child. This article discusses some of the medications and methods of insulin delivery used to treat juvenile diabetes, along with their advantages and disadvantages.

What are the most efficient treatments for juvenile diabetes?

Insulin pump therapy

Insulin pump therapy is the most effective treatment for type 1 diabetes. An insulin pump is a device that can be programmed to deliver insulin at specific times and in specific amounts, making it easier to maintain healthy blood glucose levels throughout the day. The pump can also be programmed to deliver a certain amount of insulin for a certain time for example, if you know you’ll be eating lunch at noon today but not tomorrow. This makes it easier for people with type 1 diabetes who are on multiple doses of medication (such as metformin) or who have trouble remembering when they last ate or slept enough before taking their next dose of medication.

Continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII)

Continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII) is a device that delivers insulin through a tube into the body. It’s often used to treat type 1 diabetes in children, adolescents, and young adults who find it difficult to remember to take their doses of medication. CSII can be used with multiple daily injections (MDI) therapy or on its own if you’re happy with your current treatment plan.

It’s important to note that CSII is only suitable for some. For example, suppose you have brittle diabetes or experience frequent hypoglycaemic episodes (low blood sugar levels). In that case, this isn’t an appropriate option for you as it may cause serious problems with low blood glucose levels during sleep when no one is around to help check up on you regularly.

However, these issues don’t apply. In that case, CSII could be worth exploring further: many people find it easier than other types of therapy because they don’t need to remember anything except inserting their tube every morning before breakfast; others find it more convenient as there’s no need to go out looking for new supplies each week so long as there are enough supplies left over from previous weeks’ prescriptions; finally, some prefer wearing something external rather than having needles inserted directly under their skin every day!

Multiple daily injections (MDI) therapy

Multiple daily injections (MDI) therapy is the most common treatment for both types of juvenile diabetes. MDI involves injecting insulin into your body with a syringe or pen at least twice daily, usually before meals and bedtime.

MDI is less effective than insulin pump therapy or CSII because it doesn’t provide continuous control over blood sugar levels throughout the day. It also requires more work on your part: you have to inject yourself regularly, keep track of how much insulin you’ve taken and when you last ate/snacked/drank something with calories in it (anything that could raise your blood sugar), and test your urine for ketones every few hours if you’re using rapid-acting analogs like lispro or aspart rather than NPH long-acting analogs like glargine or detemir.

Exenatide twice-daily injection

Exenatide is a drug that helps control blood sugar levels. It’s used to treat type 2 diabetes, the most common form of the disease, and usually occurs when your body doesn’t produce enough insulin or becomes resistant to its effects.

Exenatide is injected under the skin (subcutaneously) or into a vein (intravenously). The recommended dose depends on your condition:

  • Adults with type 2 diabetes who are obese or have other health issues should take one injection twice daily–one before breakfast and another before dinner.
  • Adults who don’t have these conditions should take two injections each day–one in the morning and one at night after dinner.

Glargine once-daily injection

Glargine is a once-daily injection of insulin. It’s generally given along with other diabetes medication, such as metformin or oral pills.

The benefits of taking glargine include:

  • It’s convenient because you only have one injection daily and don’t have to worry about other daily tasks like injecting yourself with insulin or checking blood glucose levels multiple times throughout the day.

The best treatment for juvenile diabetes is the one that works best for you.

It’s important to remember that there are many types of juvenile diabetes, so what works for one person may not be the right choice for another. Your doctor will help you determine which treatment best suits your specific needs. Still, it’s also important to consider other factors, such as cost and convenience, when making this decision.


It is important to remember that the best treatment for juvenile diabetes is prevention. If your child has been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, it can be helpful to learn how to manage the disease and how others have coped with it.
