In brief: Infancy

Type 1 diabetes is autoimmune diabetes.
My youngest patient was only a few months old when she developed this.

neonatal diabetes is well known. Any sign at any age of increased thirst and increase urination...

Type 1 diabetes is most common in late childhood, occasionally seen under 5 and rarely reported below 1 yr. In 30+ yrs I have seen 2 young kids at 18-24 months at the start of the disease, and bunches in the 9-17yr age group.
