Good news for children suffering diabetes

Published måndag 20 mars 2006 kl 11.02

There’s good news for children who develop type 1 diabetes at a young age. 

According to a report by Swedish investigators in the medical journal Diabetes Care, such children seem to be much less likely than children with later onset to develop one of the feared consequences of diabetes:  kidney failure in adulthood.  In a population-based study, researchers from Umeå University Hospital used data from two nationwide registers, which included more than 12 thousand cases of childhood onset of type 1 diabetes, to examine the cumulative occurrence of kidney failure caused by diabetes.  After a maximum follow-up of 27 years, they found that less than once percent of patients who had diabetes for more than fifteen years developed problems requiring dialysis or a kidney transplant.
