About The Study: In this study that included data from Kaiser Permanente Southern California of individuals age 19 and younger, the incidence of type 1 diabetes slightly increased overall and type 2 diabetes significantly increased after the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, in particular among non-Hispanic Black and Hispanic youth. These findings suggest the need for further evaluation of physiologic and behavioral risk factors preceding new-onset diabetes during the pandemic.
