DO YOU HAVE A RELATIVE WITH TYPE 1 DIABETES?
• The risk of family members of someone with type 1 diabetes developing the disease relative to the general population is 15 times the risk for someone without family history.
• A simple blood test for relatives may detect autoantibodies that show an increased risk years before symptoms appear.
• Family members may be tested through a study called TrialNet Pathway to Prevention at no cost.
• Researchers will closely monitor participants identified to be at-risk, to help in early diagnosis and management of the disease.
