Journal Article
Karagkouni, I., Sideridou, M., Stoupi, S., & Efthimiou, G. (2021). Association Between Breastfeeding and the Development of Childhood Diabetes Mellitus Type I (DM I): The Effect of Prolonged Exclusive Breastfeeding on Gut Microbiome and the Link with DM I. Acta scientific paediatrics, 4(1), 28-32

The role of breastfeeding and dietary habits was studied in 10 children with DM I (case group) and compared with 10 healthy controls. Our results showed that the case group had significantly shorter exclusive breastfeeding duration compared with the...
