The new study found that 11 percent children who are victims of diabetes also suffer from asthma.

Most children are victims of Type 1 diabetes, although Type 2 is also becoming common among children.

"Among youth with type 1 diabetes, asthma is associated with poor glycemic control, especially if asthma is untreated," researchers said.
