This article is from International Journal of Pediatric Endocrinology, volume 2014.AbstractWe aimed to assess the association between skin thickness and glycaemic control in children with type 1 diabetes. Forty-five children 51% males aged 10.5 ± 2.1 years were studied. Thickness of skin layers were determined by ultrasonography, with participants having ultrasound scans of three anatomical regions abdomen, thigh, and buttocks. Poorer glycaemic control increasing HbA1c values was associated with greater thickness of the dermis p = 0.015, with an estimated thickening of 87 μm with every 1% increase in HbA1c. Our data suggest that dermal changes associated with poorer glycaemic control in adults are also observed in childhood.
