Question:

From San Salvador De Jujuy, Jujuy, Argentina:

Spanish

Hola, tengo un hijo de 5 aņos con Diabetes de tipo 1 y fue diagnosticado cuando el tenia 1 aņo y 3 meses, Ahora tengo otro hijo de 2 meses y mi esposa no tiene demasiada leche, Existe algun riesgo de darle una leche maternizada (comprada en un supermercado) por Ejemplo S-26.

English

My five year old son has type 1 diabetes, diagnosed at 15 months of age. My other son is two months old, and my wife does not have enough milk. Is it ok to give him formula, such as S-26, that you can buy at the supermarket?

Answer:

Spanish

Por varios anos investigadores in varios paises, especialmente Finlandia y Nueva Zelandia, han propuesto que la exposicion tempraria a ciertas formas de leche de vaca podria ser un factor medioambiental importante para el desarrollo de la diabetes en ninos con suceptibilidad genetica. En este caso, especialmente considerando el hecho de que su segundo nino solo tiene alrededor de un 5% de probilidad de dearrolar diabetes autoimmune, yo pienso que deben usar cualquiera de las formulas infantiles disponibles en los supermerccados.

English

For some years researchers especially in Finland and New Zealand have proposed that an important environmental trigger for the development of clinical diabetes in genetically susceptible children is early exposure to certain kinds of cow's milk. In your circumstance and especially in view of the fact that your second son has only about a 5% chance of developing type 1A (autoimmune) diabetes anyway, I think that you should use one of the infant formulae available in the supermarket.
