JOIN TrialNet ON THE PATH TO PREVENTION
Get your family screened today. Having a family member with type 1 diabetes can significantly increase your risk of developing diabetes. TrialNet offers a simple blood test that can identify increased risk for type 1 diabetes many years before symptoms occur.
Why get screened?
Screening is the first step on the pathway to prevention. Those who test positive may be eligible to join research studies testing ways to delay and prevent the disease.
Participants in the study who are at higher risk are closely monitored for the earliest signs of type 1 diabetes; early diagnosis can lead to better health outcomes.
Participation in research helps give scientists a better understanding of what causes diabetes which may help prevent or cure this disease one day.
TrialNet offers screening to family members of people with Type 1 diabetes.
Who can be screened?
1st degree relatives (parents, children, siblings) between the ages of 2.5-45
2nd degree relatives (cousins, aunts/uncles, grandchildren) between the ages of 2.5-20
