Prevalence of type 1 and type 2 diabetes among children and adolescents from 2001 to 2009.
Significant increases occurred between 2001 and 2009 in both sexes, all age-groups, and in white, Hispanic, and black youth, with no significant changes for Asian Pacific Islanders and American Indians.
Epidemiology of type 1 diabetes.
The Burden of Diabetes Mellitus Among US Youth: Prevalence Estimates From the SEARCH for Diabetes in Youth Study
The overall prevalence estimate for diabetes in children and adolescents was ∼0.18%.
Prevalence of Diabetes in U.S. Youth in 2009: The SEARCH for Diabetes in Youth Study
Prevalence increased with age, was slightly higher in females than males, and was most prevalent in non-Hispanic White and least prevalent in Asian/Pacific Islanders, with Native American and black youth having the highest prevalence of type 2 diabetes.
The Relative Contribution of Prepregnancy Overweight and Obesity, Gestational Weight Gain, and IADPSG-Defined Gestational Diabetes Mellitus to Fetal Overgrowth
Prepregnancy overweight and obesity account for a high proportion of LGA, even in the absence of GDM, and interventions that focus on maternal overweight/obesity and gestational weight gain, regardless of G DM status have the potential to reach far more women at risk for having an LGA infant.
Parity, Mode of Delivery, and Pelvic Floor Disorders
The risk of pelvic floor disorders is independently associated with vaginal delivery but not with parity alone, and Cesarean delivery has a protective effect, similar to nulliparity, on the development of pelvicfloor disorders when compared with vaginal Delivery.
Prevalence, characteristics and clinical diagnosis of maturity onset diabetes of the young due to mutations in HNF1A, HNF4A, and glucokinase: results from the SEARCH for Diabetes in Youth.
In this systematic study of MODY in a large pediatric US diabetes cohort, unselected by referral pattern or family history, MODY was usually misdiagnosed and incorrectly treated with insulin, although many type 2 diabetes-like metabolic features were less common in the mutation-positive group, no single characteristic identified all patients with mutations.
Trends in the Prevalence of Ketoacidosis at Diabetes Diagnosis: The SEARCH for Diabetes in Youth Study
The frequency of DKA in youth with type 1 diabetes, although stable, remains high, indicating a persistent need for increased awareness of signs and symptoms of diabetes and better access to health care.
Prevalence and Co-Occurrence of Pelvic Floor Disorders in Community-Dwelling Women
Although the prevalence of pelvic floor disorders in a community-dwelling population is high, age was not a significant contributor after adjustment for confounders, including obesity, birth history, menopause, and hormones.
Association of Type 1 Diabetes vs Type 2 Diabetes Diagnosed During Childhood and Adolescence With Complications During Teenage Years and Young Adulthood
The prevalence of complications and comorbidities was higher among teenagers and young adults who had been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes compared with type 1, but frequent in both groups, and these findings support early monitoring of youth with diabetes for development of complications.
