Early puberty turns out to be linked to diabetes EurekAlert: Diabetes causes early puberty in children 12:24

Researchers from the child treatment center “Auf Der Bult” in Hannover (Germany) found that early onset of puberty in children is associated with diabetes. Scientists suggest that children enter puberty six months earlier due to insulin sensitivity. In this respect reports EurekAlert.

Researchers collected pubic hair samples from 65,518 children ages 6 to 18 diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. This is an autoimmune disease of the endocrine system, the main symptom of which is chronic hyperglycemia – high blood sugar levels. It turned out that children with diabetes of both genders enter puberty earlier than their healthy peers. Puberty occurred earlier in children who had diabetes for a longer period of time, were overweight, and had sudden increases in blood sugar.

Scientists suggest that the early onset of puberty is associated with estrogens and testosterone – female and male sex hormones, the levels of which may increase due to insulin injections. In addition, external factors such as malnutrition and poor environment may also affect the onset of puberty, the researchers noted.
