Whilst this is of course cause for concern it must be remembered that diabetes is, by necessity, a life-changing disease.  Although a diagnosis of diabetes can be difficult to deal with at any age, individuals with the disease should take ownership of their condition in order to help limit some of the more devastating health-related effects it can have.  Find out more about diabetes and further links here.
