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… Expand
Breastfeeding and incidence of non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus in Pima Indians
TLDR
Exclusive breastfeeding for the first 2 months of life is associated with a significantly lower rate of NIDDM in Pima indians, suggesting that the increase in prevalence of diabetes in some populations may be due to the concomitant decrease in breastfeeding. Expand
Breast-feeding seems to play a marginal role in the prevention of insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus.
TLDR
It is concluded that breast-feeding has very little effect on preventing IDDM in children and if it has any effect, it might be to decrease the risk in certain subgroups. Expand
Breast feeding and insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus in children.
TLDR
In their studies, the authors were unable to document any relationship between the history of breast feeding and subsequent development of IDDM in children, and the hypothesis of a protective effect of human milk on the development of insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) was evaluated. Expand
Breast Feeding and the Development of Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus
TLDR
The statistical analysis failed to confirm the hypothesis of an association between duration of breast feeding and subsequent diabetes risk, and the proposed inverse relationship between breast feeders and incidence of Type 1 diabetes mellitus was proposed. Expand
IDDM and Early Infant Feeding
TLDR
The data do not support the existence of a protective effect of breastfeeding on the risk ofIDDM, nor do the data indicate that early exposure to cow's milk and dairy products has any influence on the development of IDDM in a high-risk population. Expand
Frequency and duration of breast-feeding in Cuban children with Type 1 diabetes mellitus (DM)
TLDR
In conclusion, Cuban children with Type 1 DM have relatively low frequency of breast-feeding and there is no association found with the age at DM diagnosis or the clinical profiles at diagnosis. Expand
Dietary factors in the aetiology of diabetes.
TLDR
Obesity, particularly of the abdominal type, is common in people who develop NIDDM, and weight control by appropriate diet and physical activity is probably the most important measure for preventing NID DM. Expand
IDDM and early exposure of infant to cow’s milk and solid food
TLDR
The data do not support the existence of a protective effect of breast-feeding on the risk of insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, nor do the data indicate that early exposure to cow’s milk and dairy products has any influence on the development of IDDM. Expand
Early infant diet and risk of type 1 diabetes mellitus in Belgrade children.
TLDR
The hypothesis that infant diet is related to the occurrence of type 1 diabetes is not supported, and after adjusting for different confounding variables, infant diet was not independently associated with diabetes. Expand
Association between infant Feeding Practices and Insulin - Dependent Diabetes Mellitus (IDDM)
TLDR
The study concluded that the diabetes mellitus was highly incidence among children of artificial feeding and low incidence amongChildren of breast-feeding and it was also recommended that the duration of Breast-feeding should be continuous at least until the first six mouths of the child age especially those of families at risk of Diabetes.

Incidence of insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus among children in a North-Swedish population 1938-1977.
TLDR
The study suggests that the incidence of insulin-dependent diabetes among children has been increasing since 1938 and the increasing incidence during the last decade was especially marked for children below 5 years of age. Expand

Incidence of diabetes mellitus in Oslo, Norway 1956-65
TLDR
It is concluded that since 1950 there may have been a real increase in rates of diabetes in children and the decrease in rates for middle-aged women is not supported by mortality data for which statistics are given for associated as well as for underlying causes. Expand

Effect of thiol blocking agents on the binding of T3 and T4 in rat liver nuclear extract.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that T3 and T4 binding sites in the liver nuclei may not be altogether identical and that the different effects of -SH blocking agents on the binding of T3and T4 is probably associated with the structural configuration of these drugs. Expand
