Abstract: The incidence of type 1 diabetes in children aged 0-15 years in Thailand was reported to be as low as 0.2/100,000/year in 1984-1985. This survey from 1991 to 1995 by the same investigators using the same questionnaires distributed to hospitals in every province demonstrated increasing numbers. In Bangkok, the capital city, a survey was done by using the capture-recapture method, and found a significant incidence of 1.65/100,000/yr. This number is equal to the incidence in other countries in Asia. This result might be effectively considered as an exact incidence rate during this decade.
