Diabetes in adolescents is gaining importance since most type 1 diabetes onsets at young age, and the prevalence of type 2 diabetes is increasing in parallel with childhood obesity. Pharmacotherapy of adolescents with diabetes requires special attention because adolescence is characterized by physical and emotional growth due to a unique hormonal influence. However, a scarcity of data exists on this issue, and insulin and metformin remain as the mainstay of pharmacotherapy in adolescents with diabetes. More studies on the efficacy and safety of available medications are needed to advance pharmacotherapy in this unique population.
