AIM To evaluate whether the presence of diabetes-specific autoantibodies may predict the development of autoimmune thyroiditis (AIT) in children with type 1 diabetes (T1D). METHODS Glutamic acid decarboxylase antibodies (GADA), tyrosine phosphatase IA2 antibodies (IA2A), and insulin autoantibodies (IAA) were determined at T1D onset in 341 children and adolescents.
