A large multinational study including data from 52,721 participants have found international differences in prevalence of coeliac disease (CD) in those with T1D. Coeliac disease has a known association with T1D, and this study aimed to examine global differences in prevalence and management to improve understanding of the impact of both conditions.
International diabetes registries report that many young people with type 1 diabetes (T1D) do not meet their recommended targets for glycaemic control, however relevant Australian data has been lacking. The Australasian Diabetes Data Network (ADDN) funded by the Type 1 Diabetes Clinical Research Network (T1DCRN) and led by the Australasian Paediatric Endocrine Society (APEG) and Australian Diabetes Society (ADS) is a secure, centralised database that captures de-identified clinical data from thousands of people after diagnosis of T1D on a single purpose built database. The ADDN study group has published the first national surveillance of glycaemic control and management of type 1 diabetes in young people in Australia.
Minister Simon Birmingham has announced that nearly $4 million has been awarded to Australian researchers for the Type 1 Diabetes Clinical Research Network (T1DCRN) Australasian Diabetes Data Network (ADDN) and Career Development Awards.
