[IP] Incidence of type 1 in African-Americans and Hispanics



Hi gang

I found this at the NIDDK website:

Jan

African American children seem to have lower rates of type 1 diabetes than 
white American children. Researchers tend to agree that genetics probably 
makes type 1 diabetes less common among children with African ancestry 
compared with children of European ancestry.

Hispanic children, both male and female, have lower rates of Type 1 diabetes 
than non-Hispanic white children.
