As has been the case in many areas of child and adolescent health and in medicine in general, the recent Covid19 pandemic has affected children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes (T1D) and their families very much. In addition, health system resources have been allocated to adult care infectious disease and pulmonary medicine departments. Pediatric care and pediatric health care structures have suffered (1-3). Still, a number of important publications have been made available within the last year which shed new light on many aspects of T1D in early life and will allow to improve the care for children and adolescents with T1D.
