Childhood Adversity Linked to Type 2 Diabetes
[Source: Medical X-Press]
A new study published in Diabetologia finds that individuals who experienced childhood adversity are at increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes (T2D) in early adulthood.
The research was conducted by Assistant Professor Leonie K. Elsenburg and colleagues at the Section of Epidemiology, Department of Public Health, University of Copenhagen, Copenhagen, Denmark, and aimed to determine whether there was a link between childhood adversity and the development of T2D in early adulthood (16-38 years) among men and women.
