Based on the population registry for Alleghany County, Pennsylvania, a retrospective chart review was used to determine the number of cases of insulin dependent diabetes (IDDM) diagnosed in patients under 20 years of age between 1965 and 1989. The study discovered a disproportionately significant increase in the number of IDDM cases between 1985 and 1989, with twice the number of males as females and a significantly greater number of non-white males than white males. An exceptionally large increase among the 0-4 age group was also observed. The study correlates the rise in IDDM with chicken pox infection, providing evidence for the connection between viruses and the onset of diabetes.
