In what season were you or your child diagnosed with diabetes?

Poll dates: September 26 - October 3, 1999
Total Votes: 1,056

Scientists are trying to understand why diabetes rates are increasing throughout the world. Some are looking at patterns of diagnosis, including time of year (see Temporal, seasonal, and geographical incidence patterns of type I diabetes mellitus in children under 5 years of age in germany). If these patterns can be shown, we might be one step closer to identifying environmental factors that contribute to Type 1 diabetes.

See also Seasonal variation in the incidence of Type 1 diabetes mellitus during 1983 to 1992 in the countries around the Baltic Sea and Type 1 diabetes in Thai children aged 0-14 years.
