The need for effective interventions to prevent new cases of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes is urgent.

"These findings, which show unexpectedly high rates of childhood diabetes, paint a sobering picture of the heavy burden of diabetes on our young people. The new SEARCH data fill an important gap in our knowledge and will help guide future research and target efforts to improve the prevention and treatment of diabetes and its complications," said Barbara Linder, M.D., Ph.D., senior advisor for childhood diabetes research at the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), one of the National Institutes of Health.
