People with Type 1 Diabetes Earn Less Money

Sep 27, 2013

People with type 1 diabetes were less likely to get a university degree and earned less money than their peers who didn’t have the condition, a Swedish data study showed. Both men and women with type 1 diabetes had lower odds of getting a university degree than matched controls without the condition, according to the study. And by their early 30s, women with diabetes earned 13% less than their disease-free counterparts and men with diabetes earned 8% less.
