 Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1D) represents roughly 5 - 10% of all diabetic patients. Prevalence of this pathology points that > 500,000 children suffer from T1D globally, that are located mostly in North America as well as Europe [1]. But the epidemiology points that the incidence of T1D has escalated rapidly in recent years [2]. In 2017, the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) declared 132,600 newly diagnosed T1D cases all over the world. It is predicted that incidence of T1D in ≤ 5yr age will increase 2 fold in less than 20yrs
