  • The variations in incidence rates of insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) in childhood within and between genetically very similar Scandinavian populations and the variations in incidence rates with time are difficult to explain. Epidemiological data show that the incidence of childhood IDDM may now be declining and suggest an inverse correlation between breast-feeding frequency and IDDM in childhood. Case-control data show that diabetic children were breast-fed for shorter periods of… CONTINUE READING
