If you are between the ages of 18 and 45 and have a relative who has type 1 diabetes (T1D), you may be able to be part of a research study. A blood test can show if you are at risk for T1D years before symptoms occur. Those at increased risk for T1D may be able to join studies that are testing ways to prevent and delay T1D.
Researchers are conducting this study to learn more about the development of type 1 diabetes and to look for ways to delay or prevent it.
