Juvenile Diabetes Increases

Child Diabetes Rate Increases In Australia
Diabetes rate among children has increased according to an Australian Institute of Health and Welfare study where they showed that the rate jumped from 19 cases for every 100,000 children to 23 cases between 2000 and 2005.

“Over the study period we found 6,000 new cases among zero-to-14-year-olds and we also found a further 6,000 cases in people aged 15 to 39,” AIHW spokeswoman Louise Catanzariti said.

“So it’s important to remember that type 1 diabetes can occur at any age, not just in childhood.”
