WHAT

DO YOU HAVE A RELATIVE WITH TYPE 1 DIABETES?

The TrialNet Type 1 Diabetes Research Group is screening relatives of people with Type 1 diabetes to find out if these family members are at risk for developing diabetes. A simple blood test could detect an increased risk for type 1 diabetes up to 10 years before symptoms appear. Finding out if you are at increased risk for this disease is important because you might be eligible to join research studies that are testing ways to prevent or delay type 1 diabetes.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?

First-degree relatives (children, siblings, parents) of people with type 1 diabetes between the ages of 1 – 45.

AND

Second-degree relatives (aunts/uncles, cousins, nieces/nephews, grandchildren) of people with type 1 diabetes between the ages of 1 – 20.
