Registre épidémiologique du diabète chez l’enfant en Languedoc-Roussillon


Since 1st January 2000, the PEDIAB-LR registry has listed new cases of diabetes in children under 16 years of age in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of France, in order to assess the incidence and epidemiological characteristics of children affected by diabetes. At the end of December 2010, 745 children had been registered. The characteristics of these children included an identical proportion of girls and boys, a mean age of 8 years at diagnosis, and a family history of type 1 diabetes in 8.4% of the cases. Inaugural ketoacidosis was observed in 69.5% of the patients and was severe in 23.7% of these cases. To replace intravenous insulin, a two-injection dosing regimen (in the morning and before dinner) was prescribed in 76.5% of cases, multi-injections of basal-bolus in 16%, and subcutaneous insulin infusion (insulin pump therapy) in 7.5% of cases. Between 2000 and 2010, there was no increase in overall incidence. It is noteworthy that age at diagnosis tended to decrease, but this was not statistically significant. In conclusion, the PEDIAB-LR registry is currently the only French registry on diabetes in children, analyzing many factors related to its incidence, such as age at diagnosis and the existence of ketoacidosis.
