Abstract: The ability to detect subclinical signs of the microvascular complications of diabetes during adolescence and our increased understanding of risk factors for their development provide an opportunity to prevent irreversible organ damage. Glycaemic control makes a major contribution to the risk and progression of microvascular complications. However, the unique psychological and physiological changes of childhood and adolescence present a considerable challenge for those attempting to reduce the burden of adult microvascular disease.
