The article focuses on the new developments in treating type 1 diabetes among children. The developments suggest the efforts of diabetes teams implementing new approaches in pediatric diabetes care is successful. It is noted that the treatment of diabetes in infants and toddlers are linked with additional, unique challenges related to the physiological and developmental characteristics of children. It is suggested that the clinical significance of increased insulin antibody formation and changes in lung function parameters should be clarified. It is also recommended that there should be an effort in investigating the long-term benefits of these developments.
