Children who have had enterovirus are at increased risk for developing type 1 diabetes compared with children who have not had the virus, according to recent findings published in Diabetologia.

Tsai Chung-Li, MD, of China Medical University in Taiwan, and colleagues used data from Taiwan’s national health insurance system to evaluate 570,133 children younger than 18 years with enterovirus infection and 570,133 age-matched controls without enterovirus infection to determine its effect on type 1 diabetes incidence.
