New York – A new study suggests there may be a link between higher education and a rare form of diabetes. As reported by Reuters, researchers found in a study on adults living in Norway, that those who had reached college had a significantly higher chance of developing autoimmune diabetes than those who did not complete high school.

Study author Lisa Olsson of the Karolinska Institutet in Sweden is quoted in the report as stating of the possible causes for the correlation, aside from traditional risk factors for the disease, “Subjects with high education may have a different lifestyle (or) be exposed to other environmental factors than people with low education, which may increase their risk.”

More information about the research findings may be found in Diabetes Care.
