If the trend continues, type 1 diabetes doubles the number of children under five. The cause is lack of vitamin D and the house may not be very clean.
Diabetes Type 1 is a variant of diabetes that is not caused by obesity. In Europe, the number of children who are immunocompromised increases by 3.9% each year in under 15 year olds. Especially the increase of diseases of young children is remarkable. Between 2005 and 2020, the number of children under the age of five will double.
The cause is not entirely clear. Although there are genetic components, environmental factors also play an important role. This disease is more common in northern Europe, so vitamin D deficiency may be the cause. After all, these vitamins are made by the sun. Another explanation is that our house is very clean. Because children do not have enough contact with bacteria, the immune system reacts differently, so the body can attack its own cells.
