Description:
Diabetes mellitus is a chronic condition associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Early diagnosis and appropriate management is essential to reduce the occurrence of complications. International studies indicate that the burden of Type I and Type II diabetes is substantial and is likely to rise among children as well as adults. [1] It is estimated that 0.2% of all children (aged 0-19 years) in the Republic of Ireland (2,229 children) have Type I diabetes. [2] Therefore, the aim of this study was to determine trends in hospitalisations for diabetes in children and teenagers (0-19 years) in Ireland for 2005-2012 inclusive.
