Girls with type I diabetes are more overweight than their peers, a study in Finland recently reported. This indicates that a more effective prevention of obesity is now needed in the treatment of diabetes, the researchers claim.

This study, performed by the University of Helsinki, Finland, used 48 girls with type I diabetes age 10-19 years.
