  1. Increasing prevalence of juvenile onset Type 1 (insulin-dependent) diabetes mellitus in Sardinia : the military service approach.

    Article - En anglais

    In order to obtain new and more detailed information about temporal trends and geographic distribution of Type 1 (insulin-dependent) diabetes mellitus in Sardinia, we screened a series of birth cohorts (1936-1973) of all male army conscripts aged 18-19 years, filed in the Sardinian Conscript Register where Type 1 diabetes is a cause of rejection.

    A total of 678 diabetic subjects, born and permanently residing in Sardinia, was identified.

    The point prevalence (x 1000) at the age of 20 years in the birth cohorts ranged from values close to zero for the first ten cohorts (19361945) up to a maximum of 3.08 (95% confidence limits 2.28-4.08) for the 1966 cohort and continued high thereafter although an apparent decrease was observed from the early 1970s birth cohorts.
