Parental type 1 diabetes can affect children’s cognitive development

Cognitive development in children could be affected regardless of which biological parent has type 1 diabetes, according to research publishing April 19th in the open access journal PLOS Medicine. The research shows for the first time that having a parent with a chronic disease like type 1 diabetes may be associated with lower school performance rather than maternal high blood sugar during fetal development.
