Child's gluten intake during infancy linked to increased risk of developing type 1 diabetes



New research presented at the Annual Meeting of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) in Barcelona, Spain (16-20 September) shows that a child’s intake of gluten at age 18 months is associated with a 46% increased risk of developing type 1 diabetes for each extra 10g of gluten consumed. There was no association found between the mother’s intake of gluten during pregnancy and type 1 diabetes in her child, conclude the authors who include Dr. Nicolai Lund-Blix, Oslo University Hospital, and the Norwegian Institute of Public Health, Oslo, Norway.
