Research: Causes and Prevention

Question from Fernie, British Columbia, Canada:

What percentage of children with diabetes were allergic to penicillin before they were diagnosed? Is this perhaps a link with the child getting diabetes?

I am not aware of any link between diabetes and a penicillin allergy.
