> Type 1 diabetes: suspected a bacterium

The origin of the great majority of cases of type 1 diabetes, according to researchers at the university of Sassari who have published their study on the monthly Focus, we would have the Mycobacterium avium paratuberculosis (Map), a bacterium ‘relative’ of the mycobacteria of leprosy and Tb, which già is attributed with the responsibilityà of the cases of Crohn’s disease and irritable bowel syndrome.

According to the study of sassari, in 70% of cases of diabetes, sardinian, and English, and 40% of those lombardi is involved with the Map. “It is emerging that explains Leonardo Sechi, professor of microbiology at the università di Sassari – depending on the genetic predisposition of the patients, a person encountering the Map develops diabetes, another irritable bowel, and still another the Crohn’s.

In diabetic patients in which not c’è the Map makers are probably other intestinal pathogens”. This particular type of bacterium that lives inside cells that it infects, and has a long incubation, is transmitted to the children with the milk: you can; find, in fact, in the powdered milk for infants, in the mother (if the mother is infected) and in dairy products from infected animals, and is even able to resist the pasteurization.

The research of the università di Sassari, attributing the same source to the Crohn’s and diabetes, and hence opens up to hope that also for the defeat of diabetes may be sufficient for an antibiotic. Worldwide the incidence of type 1 diabetes increases of 3% per year. In Sardinia, the incidence is extremely high: about 40 cases per 100 thousand children.
