Summary:

This is a UK national, prospective, cohort study of children and young people with type 2 diabetes (T2D) characterised by anthropometry, biomarkers, and co-morbidities; and in whom other diagnoses (such as type 1 diabetes, maturity onset diabetes of the young (MODY)) have been excluded. The overall objective of this study is to characterise a cohort of children and young people with T2D. This will include baseline and repeat assessments over time of the anthropometric, cardiovascular, metabolic and psychological status of individuals with T2D in order to describe the natural history of T2D and related co-morbidities in a multiethnic cohort of UK children with the disease.
