Abstract english

The Environmental Determinants of Diabetes in the Young (TEDDY) study is designed to identify environmental exposures triggering islet autoimmunity and type 1 diabetes (T1D) in genetically high-risk children. We describe the first 100 participants diagnosed with T1D, hypothesizing that (i) they are diagnosed at an early stage of disease, (ii) a high proportion are diagnosed by an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT), and (iii) risk for early T1D is related to country, population, human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-genotypes and immunological markers.
