Incidence

  • Age of clinical presentation of T1D:
    Type 1 Diabetes attributes for 85% of all childhood diabetes cases.
    The clinical disease commonly appears during middle childhood, at the onset of puberty or through teenage development. But it can present at any age. 50% of all T1D cases have clinical presentation of the disease during adulthood; usually below 30 years of age. 

  • The incidence of T1D is on the rise all over the world.
    An average yearly increase of 1.5% has been documented. Western Europe, USA and Australia have higher incidence than that in Asia, Africa and South America. 

  • Documented prevalence of clinical diabetes of type 1 variety.
    It varies in different countries for various reasons. And the statistics are changing far too rapidly for me to pinpoint what percentage of children are likely to be affected. However, a rough estimate would be; 1 to 3 children could be hit by the disease in group of ten thousand.
