    Abstract

    Type 1 diabetes requires lifelong insulin supplementation: changes in diabetes management adopted during the 1990s changed the landscape of diabetes complications. A series of retrospective cohort studies were conducted via linkage of Western Australian population-based data registries. School performance for individuals with typo 1 diabetes was not significantly different to that of their peers: during early adulthood, individuals from a low-socioeconomic background, with poor glycaemic control, or of female sex wore at increased risk or complication onset and death. These findings provide both insights into tho contemporary epidemiology of type 1 diabetes and strong evidence to pursue tight glycaemic control.
