Type 1 diabetes rate increased among non-Hispanic white youth

October 28, 2014

From 2002 to 2009, the rate at which non-Hispanic white youth in the United States were diagnosed with type 1 diabetes increased significantly in every age group but the youngest, according to recent study findings.

Researchers used data from the SEARCH for Diabetes in Youth Study to calculate annual type 1 diabetes incidence per 100,000 person-years among non-Hispanic white youth younger than 20 years from 2002 to 2009. Overall, 5,842 participants with newly diagnosed type 1 diabetes were evaluated over the study period from a population of nearly 3 million children annually.
