In 2010/11, the prevalence of diabetes among children aged 1 to 4 years was 0.1%. This was unchanged from 2000/01.
Diabetes among young children is mainly type 1 diabetes – which has genetic risk factors along with environmental triggers. Therefore, it is not surprising that there is not a significant variation from year to year.
