Population density determines the direction of the association between ambient ultraviolet radiation and type 1 diabetes incidence

Elliott, Jane; Lucas, Robyn; Clements, Mark; Bambrick, Hilary

Description

Background: Type 1 diabetes incidence has increased rapidly over the last 20 years, and ecological studies show inverse latitudinal gradients for both incidence and prevalence. Some studies have found season of birth or season of diagnosis effects. Together these findings suggest an important role for environmental factors in disease etiology.Objective: To examine whether type 1 diabetes incidence varies in relation to ambient ultraviolet radiation (UVR) in Australian children.Methods: We used...[Show more]
