Are you the parent of a child ages 1-17 who has a relative with type 1 diabetes (T1D)? If so, your child may be able to be screened for T1D studies, with the goal of preventing T1D in the future. With a blood test, doctors can determine if an individual is at risk for T1D years before symptoms occur. Those at risk for T1D may be able to join studies that may prevent or delay T1D.
Researchers are screening children at risk of developing type 1 diabetes to learn more about the development of type 1 diabetes and to find ways to delay or prevent it.
