The incidence of type 1 diabetes has increased by 50% in Tasmania with 37 new cases reported. Experts from Diabetes Australia don't know what is causing the rising incidence of type 1 diabetes not only in Tasmania but also in other Australian states. The onset of type 1 diabetes can be caused by environmental factors such as mumps or measles which can initiate the auto-immune system to start destroying pancreatic cells that produce insulin.
