Donor-conceived adults have higher incidence of immunology diseases
(Flinders University) Adults conceived through sperm donation reported higher frequencies of allergies, type 1 diabetes and other autoimmune conditions. Donor sperm conceived adults had seven times more type 1 diabetes diagnoses; double the incidence of thyroid disease, acute bronchitis and sleep apnoea; and 10% more reported allergies. The study looked at 272 donor-conceived adult participants compared to 877 conceived naturally, from around the world with most from Australia, US, UK, Belgium and Netherlands.

Pro-inflammatory lipids precede Type 1 diabetes onset in mouse model and children
(University of Alabama at Birmingham) Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease where immune cells -- led by inflammatory macrophages -- attack and destroy the pancreatic beta cells. It now appears that inflammatory lipid signaling may help provoke this attack. Researchers have identified a proinflammatory lipid profile that precedes development of T1D in a mouse model and in children under age 15 who are at high risk for T1D. This finding may identify candidate lipid therapeutic targets to prevent T1D. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

Helping teens with type 1 diabetes improve diabetes control with MyDiaText
(University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing) Adolescence is a difficult period of development, made more complex for those with Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM). The challenges of managing multiple doses of daily insulin administration, blood glucose monitoring, dietary and exercise requirements, can make self-care difficult and complicate outcomes. Adolescents with T1DM often have poorer diabetes outcomes than others, indicating that glucose control is difficult for them to maintain. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)
