Abstract

Background: Bisphenol-A (BPA) is one of the most abundantly produced chemicals globally. Concerns have been raised about BPA's possible role in the pathogenesis of type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM). The main aim of the current study was to evaluate the possible association between BPA exposure and T1DM. The second aim was to investigate children's possible BPA exposure routes in Turkey.
