  • Study Links Enterovirus in Kids to T1 Diabetes

    http://www.medpagetoday.com/Endocrin...Diabetes/48153

    In a retrospective analysis of national insurance data, children younger than age 18 who had been infected with enterovirus were 48% more likely to develop type 1 diabetes, Tsai- Chung Li, MD, of China Medical University in Taiwan, and colleagues reported online in Diabetologia.

    Specifically, kids who were older than age 10 had an increased risk of type 1 diabetes (HR 2.18, 95% CI 1.18 to 4.04).

    There was no relationship, however, between type 1 diabetes and either allergic rhinitis or bronchial asthma.
