Antibiotics Increase Diabetes Risk In Kids

UPI reports, "The increased risk of type 1 diabetes has been associated with one course of antibiotics in childhood." Researchers at New York University School of Medicine conducted the study on mice. Dr. Xuesong Zhang, the lead study author, told the press, "Our findings confirm earlier work showing that antibiotics can increase risk for type 1 diabetes. Even a single early-life course may perturb the intestinal microbiome in ways that lead to long-term consequences in the intestinal wall, including immune cell changes and damage to the pancreas." More information will be released as their studies continue.
