Abstract

Clinical characteristics and metabolic control in a large cohort of children with Type 1 diabetes (T1DM) were evaluated. Fifty-three Italian centers for childhood diabetes collected blood samples and clinical records from 3560 consecutive eligible patients aged 1.6-17.10 yr with disease duration >12 months. HbA1c determinations were centralized in a Diabetes Control and Complications Trial-controlled laboratory. HbA1c grand mean was 8.87±1.77%. Thirty-two percent of the patients had HbA1c values 1c levels (1c values were inversely correlated to the frequency of blood glucose monitoring (p1c >8.8% (p1c>8% despite regionalized centers, multidisciplinary team approach, free access to appropriate diabetes care, education, frequent blood glucose monitoring and multiple insulin injections.
