Gut microbiome during infancy may predict future type 1 diabetes

Children who develop type 1 diabetes may have biomarkers present in the gut microbiome as early as age 1 year, according to a study published in Diabetologia.In a comparison of stool samples collected at age 1 year among a small group of children who developed type 1 diabetes in the future and children who would not develop diabetes, researchers observed differences in microbiome composition. The findings suggest analyzing the gut microbiome may help identify infants who have an elevated risk for developing type 1 diabetes.“Screening children at birth for genetic risk and monitoring gutRead More
