Diabetes is among the immune disorders that continue to soar in the US in terms of occurrence, with public health officials saying little publicly about researching the possible causes.
Now, a new modeling study issued by CDC predicts a 700% increase in young people having type 2 diabetes, a well as a dramatic rise in young people with type 1 diabetes.
Vaccination, which impacts the patients' immune system, has long been associated with diabetes and other immune disorders in some people.
Numerous case studies conclude that Covid-19 vaccination "can induce type 1 diabetes in some individuals with a genetic predisposition."
Other studies have indicated a different vaccination schedule should be carefully developed for children with diabetes due to "several problems related to the use of vaccines" in that population.
"Type 1 diabetes remains more common in U.S. youth, but type 2 diabetes has substantially increased among young people over the last two decades," according to study scientists. The childhood vaccine schedule-- the number of government-recommended vaccination doses-- more than tripled over a fairly short period that saw a dramatic rise in allergies, rashes, and other immune-related disorders among the young, as well as autism and other neurological disorders. Many public health officials deny the existence of peer-reviewed, published studies showing links between vaccines and these health issues in some. Vaccine industry propagandists, such as Children's Hospital of Pennsylvania, claim there is no evidence linking vaccines to diabetes despite the many studies.

The following is a new statement about the shocking projections for diabetes, issued by CDC. It fails to mention the potential Covid vaccine or other vaccine links.
Future Surge in Diabetes Could Dramatically Impact People Under 20 in U.S.
The number of young people under age 20 with diabetes in the United States is likely to increase more rapidly in future decades, according to a new modeling study published today in Diabetes Care. Researchers forecasted a growing number of people under age 20 newly diagnosed with diabetes during 2017–2060.
This expected upward trend may lead to as many as 220,000 young people having type 2 diabetes in 2060 —a nearly 700% increaseand the number of young people with type 1 diabetes could increase by as much as 65% in the next 40 years. Even if the rate of new diabetes diagnoses among young people remains the same over the decades, type 2 diabetes diagnoses could increase nearly 70% and type 1 diabetes diagnoses could increase 3% by 2060.
Type 1 diabetes remains more common in U.S. youth, but type 2 diabetes has substantially increased among young people over the last two decades. Given this upward trend, a total of 526,000 young people may have diabetes (including both type 1 and type 2 diabetes) by 2060. Comparatively, 213,000 young people in the United States had diabetes in 2017.
“This new research should serve as a wake-up call for all of us. It’s vital that we focus our efforts to ensure all Americans, especially our young people, are the healthiest they can be,” said CDC Acting Principal Deputy Director Debra Houry, MD, MPH. “The COVID-19 pandemic underscored how critically important it is to address chronic diseases, like diabetes. This study further highlights the importance of continuing efforts to prevent and manage chronic diseases, not only for our current population but also for generations to come.”
In addition to the overall predictions, analyses of these data by race and ethnicity predicted a higher burden of type 2 diabetes for Black, Hispanic/Latino, Asian, Pacific Islander, and American Indian/Alaska Native youth.
“Increases in diabetes—especially among young people—are always worrisome, but these numbers are alarming,” said Christopher Holliday, PhD, MPH, MA, FACHE, director of CDC’s Division of Diabetes Translation. “This study’s startling projections of type 2 diabetes increases show why it is crucial to advance health equity and reduce the widespread disparities that already take a toll on people’s health.”
There could be several explanations for the rise in type 2 diabetes, including the increasing prevalence of childhood obesity. The presence of diabetes in people of childbearing age might be another important factor, because maternal diabetes increases risk of diabetes in children.
People with diabetes are at higher risk for heart disease or a stroke, diabetes complications, and premature death than those who do not have diabetes. Researchers are actively investigating ways of preventing type 1 diabetes and studies in adults have identified steps that can be taken to reduce the risk factors for type 2 diabetes.
