Early and late exposure to solids increases infants risk of type 1 diabetes
Early and late exposure to solids increases infants risk of type 1 diabetes (July 9, 2013 - Insidermedicine) From Colorado - A new report published in JAMA Pediatrics finds that both early and late exposure to solid foods raises risk of type 1 diabetes in infants. Researchers studied a group of infants and their umbilical cord blood to determine their risk of diabetes. They found that beginning to eat any solid food before 4 months of age and after 6 months of age was associated with raised risk of type 1 diabetes. As well, researchers found that early exposure to fruit and late exposure to rice/oat raised risk of diabetes, whereas breastfeeding when wheat/barley were introduced into the infants diet actually lowered risk.
