As a follow up to my discussion on the incidence/prevalence of Type 1 in children and adolescents, my research has revealed that in a regional high school there is a 1% incidence. When confronted with the number, I was astounded. The number supports the data suggested by members in other discussions. While I still have a strong resistance to believing that the incidence is that high (I believe this is an aberration), I am beginning to lean toward the beliefs by those people who think the CDC data are too low.
intereting, my daughter has 150 kids in her grade and there are three t1's in her class,
Hm, When I was in high school (1.200 students) there were three T1s. Me, and two in the grade below me, and one T2 in the grade above me.
