Health Tip

Bigger is not Necessarily Better

A recent Scandinavian study looking at type 1 diabetes, found a relationship between weight gained during the first year of life and the onset of type 1 diabetes in childhood. This study done with data from Norway and Denmark is interesting due to the fact that the Nordic countries have the highest burden of type 1 diabetes. It seems that faster growth may be one of the keys in this, however, type 1 diabetes is a complicated disease and the researchers are not ready to make any concrete recommendations on limiting child growth until more research can be done.
