Incidence and temporal trends of type 1 diabetes in China: a systematic review and meta-analysis
This study is registered with PROSPERO, number CRD42016039284. Findings We identified 816 reports from the search and included 19 reports of population-based studies published between 1994 and 2015 in the analysis. Overall incidence of type 1 diabetes in mainland China was 0·74 (95% CI 0·55–1·00) per 100 000 person-years between 1980 and 2013. Incidence (per 100 000 person-years) increased rapidly from 0·57 (0·43–0·75) in 1990 to 1·04 (0·64–1·68) in 2000 and 3·36 (1·66–6·82) in 2010 (p<0·0001). The ...

Prepregnancy diabetes, hyperglycaemic status, and adverse pregnancy outcomes in Chinese women: a population-based mega-cohort study
This study was approved by the Institutional Research Review Board at the National Health and Family Planning Commission and National Research Institute for Family Planning. Written informed consent in Chinese was obtained from all participants or their legal representatives.

This study included a nationally representative sample of 46 239 adults aged 20 years or older from 14 provinces and municipalities. After an overnight fast, participants had an oral glucose tolerance test. Previously diagnosed diabetes was self-reported. We randomly selected 4671 patients with diabetes and 1002 individuals with normal glucose tolerance as controls. Participants were screened centrally for glutamic acid decarboxylase autoantibodies (GAD-Ab), protein tyrosine phosphatase-like protein autoantibodies (IA2-Ab), and zinc transporter isoform 8 autoantibodies (ZnT8-Ab) using validated methods of the Islets Auto...
