According to the NIHFW (2015) and CDC (2011) reported that type II diabetes is a scourge, an approximately 430 children were suffering from the type II diabetes between age group 10 - 19 years. Type II diabetes is a long-term illness that can lead to serious complications if person does not receive treatment. At the moment, there is no cure. However, with a carefully controlled diet, life-style modification and medication to control blood sugar, the disease can enter long term remission. In this present research study we estimate the prevalence of type-II diabetes in children and their risk factors for the intervention of type-II diabetes. Retrospective observational study was conducted at Department of Paediatrics, Bowring and Lady Curzon Hospital, Bengaluru for the period of (2015 - 2017). Then cases were screened in OPD and cases admitted ward. The inclusion and exclusion criteria were employed to screening of patients. Demographic and risk parameters were collected tested questionnaires. Collected data were analysed by using Minitab. The results describe, the mean age of the type II exposed cases was 13.45 years with SD 2.11 years (IQR 9 - 17 Years); the mean BMI was 36.22 kg/m2, height to weight ratio was found to be significantly associated with type II diabetes. Risk factors significantly differ with increase of type II diabetes, intake of frozen food, junk food, family history, sedentary life, family separation, obesity fell in to the body mass index condition is the toll to increase the prevalence of type II diabetes. The results conclude that, practice of controlled diet, physical exercise, encourage the children on positive support of academic, physical exercise activities, allow to positive thinking will be the key indicators for reducing the number of infectives of type II diabetes.
