Early respiratory tract infections may raise children's type 1 diabetes risk

Early respiratory tract infections may raise children's type 1 diabetes riskAccording to study co-author Dr. Anette-Gabriele Ziegler, of Helmholtz Zentrum Munchen in Munich, Germany, and colleagues, children who experienced respiratory tract infections between birth and 2.9 months of age or between 3 and 5.9 months of age were more likely to be diagnosed with type 1 diabetes by the age of 8 years, compared with children who did not develop respiratory tract infections during those age ranges.

The risk of type 1 diabetes increased further if a child developed a respiratory tract infection during both age intervals, the team found.

Additionally, the researchers found that infants who developed a viral infection between birth and 5.9 months of age were at greater risk for type 1 diabetes by the age of 8 years than those who did not develop a viral infection.
