Purpose: To determine whether IDDM significantly interferes with academic achievement. M ethods: This descriptive study used cross sectional and longitudinal growth analysis. Three groups of children were studied: children with IDDM (n=244), a sibling control group (n=110), and a classmate control group (n=209). Academic achievement was measured with a standardized achievement test, the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills (ITBS). Diabetes variables measured included metabolic control (HgbA1c) and age at disease onset. Results: Current academic performance on the ITBS did not reveal decreased performance by children with IDDM; in fact children with IDDM did better than siblings in math (p<0.04) and classmates in reading (p<0.02). Academic achievement curves over time for each group revealed no statistically significant differences when tested with hierarchical linear modeling (HLM). Analysis of achievement among subgroups of children with diabetes did not reveal significant differences based on age of onset. However children with good metabolic control (HgbA1C <8) performed significantly better on reading and composite scores than those with poor control (Hgb A1C >10). Conclusions: For most children, IDDM is not associated with lower academic performance compared to either siblings or classmates, although poor metabolic control may be associated with lower academic achievement.
