    I read somewhere that more people with Diabetes are born in August, and more people are dx'd in August as well. There seem to be a lot of birthdays this month so I thought I'd try a poll to see if this seems to be true. Unfortunately the poll is limited to 10 options so I have to double up.
    Thanks, Jane:cwds:

    My son's birthday is July 27th, so even though he counts as July, he is almost August! He was diagnosed in late May (2002).

    I had actually heard that most dx cases were in Jan, Feb, March but I'll be interested to see the results on this thread.

    hemispheres

    It could be that most cases are dx'd in Spring? That would make it right for us in the Southern Hemishere being around August, and right for you too Amber.:cwds:

    Born June. Diagnosed December. Oldest child. No family type 1 history. We defy the most "groupings" in most categories, yet here we are.

    not sure if this matters but had many many ear infections growing up, tubes put in at 1 yr old, almost needed a 2nd set. Had the chickenpox vaccine (my oldest one had them the old fashioned way.)

    cwd poll about month diagnosed

    In case you haven't seen it: http://www.childrenwithdiabetes.com/poll/poll20060305.htm

    My daughter born August, Diagnosed March seems to fit in with the majority. I wonder why birth month would make any difference when she was diagnosed 8 years later.

    Julia was born in Dec, and dxed Jan 2006 at 5yrs old. I noticed slight signs in dec 2005 at christmas parties, but thought she was getting a bladder infection, or that it was the amount she was drinking. She wasn't in bad shape though when she was dxed. She spent one night in the hospital, had an A1C of 11, but only had a trace of keytones. I am not sure if she would have been dxed the month earlier because she would always recover before I could get to hubbies B/G monitor. I heard that the flu season, and the holidays are the biggest times for people to be dxed. I am not sure how true this is though.........
    Interesting poll, thanks!

    Hunter was born in July [supposed to be August, but wanted to come a month early] and dx'd in November.
