A study from Turin, Italy, has found a higher incidence of type 1 diabetes in males than in females in the age group of 15-29 years old. The report of the study, published in Diabetes Care, January 1993, recalls previous studies from Sweden and Spain in similar age groups that found males to be a greater risk of developing insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus.
Evidence suggests that either sex hormones or an increase in exposure to environmental factors for males after the age of 14 may play a role.
