Aims/hypothesis. To study the epidemiology of childhood-onset (Type 1) insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus in Europe., the EURODIAB collaborative group in 1988 established prospective, geographically-defined registers of all children diagnosed with Type I diabetes under 15 years of age. This report is based on 24423 children, registered by 36 centres, with complete participation during the period 1989-1998 and representing most European countries with a population coverage of approximately 20 million children.
