    A three-year-old Texas girl may be the youngest patient ever to have been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, which is normally later onset than Type 1 and associated with diet and obesity.

    The little girl weighed just over 77 pounds when she was diagnosed. After medical advice to her parents (both obese themselves) she lost 75 per cent of her body weight and interestingly for medical research, the illness seems to have completely reversed and she is now healthy and diabetes-free.
