The incidence of type-1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM), a chronic condition characterised by lack of insulin, peaks in children aged 5-7 years and in adolescents. The UK has a comparatively high incidence of T1DM, at between 17 and 24 per 100,000 children, but even so the first presentation of a child with new-onset T1DM is an uncommon event for General Practitioners (GPs).
