Abstract

Summary The incidence of thyroid, gastric, and adrenal antibodies was determined in 155 juvenile-onset and in 97 adult-onset diabetic patients. Juvenile diabetic patients had a strikingly increased incidence of thyroid and gastric antibodies, as compared with that of control subjects. The adult-onset diabetic patients, however, had essentially no difference in the incidence of antibodies as compared with that of control subjects.
