Studies and Surveys
- The TrialNet Pathway to Prevention Study offers screening at no charge to relatives of people with type 1 diabetes. The screening can identify risk for type 1 diabetes years before symptoms appear. Those at increased risk may be able to join research studies testing ways to prevent the disease. Others can continue to be monitored for the earliest signs of type 1 diabetes, which can prevent serious symptoms. To find a TrialNet location, request a test kit, or learn more, visit DiabetesTrialNet.org.
- Parents of Children and Teenagers Between Ages 8-16 with Type 1 Diabetes for at least six months are needed to Participate in a Study on the relationship between any parental stress in caring for a child with Type 1 Diabetes.
- There are numerous families who suffered the missed diagnosis by their doctor of their child's type 1 diabetes, resulting in hardships and even death. Under a project called A Child's Cry for Change, an attempt is being made to change this trend. The goal is to amass a large number of these missed diagnosis stories and present them to leadership in medicine, health agencies, and government in the hopes that change occurs; the very least being the administration of a urine test (ideally a blood test). We are seeking families to send us their missed diagnosis stories without naming the physician or treating facility. Please send your email, including your name and address, to: Tom Karlya, (aka DiabetesDad) at firstname.lastname@example.org. In the subject line please write: My Diagnosis Story. Thank you. Together we can make a difference.
