The Type1Screen Study
The T1Screen Study is finding out what causes Type 1 Diabetes so we can find ways to prevent it.
In Australia, type 1 diabetes in children is twice as common as it was 20 years ago. Type1Screen offers antibody testing to children and young adults to determine if they are at risk of developing type 1 diabetes. Families of children with a negative antibody test are reassured their child's risk of developing type 1 diabetes is low. Those with a positive antibody test are offered close monitoring and participation in clinical trials which aim to prevent type 1 diabetes.
100% of your donation goes directly to the Type1Screen program and allows us to offer this opportunity to as many families as possible.
