Significant Increase in Type 1 Reported in Denmark

| Feb 1, 2003

Children born in Denmark after 1985 are at increased risk of developing type 1 diabetes, say researchers involved in the Danish Study Group of Diabetes in Childhood, who evaluated trends in age-specific incidence rates between 1970 and 2000.

Overall, the type 1 incidence rate for ages 0-14 years between 1996 and 2000 was 19.5 per 100,000 children. Examined by age group, the incidence rate per 100,000 was 12.7 for the 0-4 age group, 19.4 for ages 5-9, and 26.3 for ages 10-14.

Researchers note that their analysis showed a "modest" yearly increase of 1.2 percent in type 1 diagnoses from 1970 to 2000 and a "significant...effect with an increased risk for children born after 1985."
