From Edgewood, Washington, USA:
My 8 year old was diagnosed 3 months ago, and was previously inoculated for Hepatitis B. I have just read of a possible connection between Hepatitis B vaccinations and increased incidence of Type 1 diabetes. Has this report any validity? If so, how do we find out if there is a connection in our case?
A variety of immunisations have been linked to the onset of diabetes but there is no robust evidence to support such a connection.
