TrialNet is a study screening relatives of people with Type 1 Diabetes to find out if any family member is at risk for developing diabetes themselves. It involves a blood draw to test for the presence of diabetes related autoantibodies that may appear before Type 1 Diabetes develops.
Those eligible to participate:
- Must be between 1 and 45 years of age
- First-degree relative (sibling, child or parent) of the person with Type 1 Diabetes
- Second-degree relative between 1 and 20 years of age (cousin, uncle, aunt, niece, nephew, grandparent or half-sibling) of the person with Type 1 Diabetes
Benefit to enrolling, if you qualify, would include opportunities to enroll in Diabetes Prevention Studies. These studies are being planned to determine whether new therapies can delay or prevent the onset of Type 1 Diabetes.
