From Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA:

Approximately how many children are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in the US per year? How many children in the US have type 1 diabetes?


In 2000, the IDF estimated the incidence of type 1 diabetes in children to be 16 cases per 100, 000 children per year in the US (quoted in Pediatric and Adolescent Diabetes, Stuart J. Brink, Viorel Serban, 2003, page 54).
