Question:

From Liverpool, Merseyside, United Kingdom:

My grandson has typeá1 diabetes, and no genetic links have been found. Has an association been found with the current polio vaccinations used in the UK and type 1 diabetes in children? Can anyone enlighten me on the use of Calpol and Disprol including the effects of this medication on organs such as the pancreas in children under the age of one? Could this have caused or contributed to the onset of type 1 diabetes?
