Abstract: The HLA profile of 147 Chinese patients with juvenile onset diabetes mellitus was studied. There were HLA associations related to different ages of onset of the disease. The patients who presented during the first decade of life had strong linkages with AW 33, B 17 and BW 22 (BW 54/55) but a weak association with DR 4. In contrast, patients whose age of onset ranged from 31 to 39 years had increased frequency of BW 46. Patients with diabetic complications (retinopathy, nephropathy, neuropathy and peripheral vascular disease) which were present singly or in combination were associated with HLA AW 33 and B 17. It would appear that genetic factors may be related to both the age of onset of diabetes as well as to the development of complications.
