Do You Have Type 1 Diabetes
and Kidney Disease?
Do you also have a brother or sister with Type 1 diabetes who has no kidney problems? If so, you may be able to help researchers at the Joslin Diabetes Center discover genetic factors that may make some people with diabetes more susceptible to kidney disease.
The Joslin Kidney Study is looking for individuals diagnosed with insulin-dependent diabetes before the age of 31 who have a clinical diagnosis of kidney disease - including protein-uria, dialysis, and kidney transplant - and who have at least one other diabetic sibling with no kidney complications.
If this sounds like your family, contact us to see if you and your sibling(s) qualify. If admitted to the Joslin Kidney Study, participation involves questions about your family history and your health, a blood pressure measurement, and a blood sample collection.
People from all over the world can participate. Each qualified participant will be compensated for his or her time, and the confidentiality of all information will be protected.
For more information, and to see if you qualify, please contact Project Manager Kellie Anderson:
