TrialNet Pathway to Prevention

Clinical Study Details

TrialNet Pathway to Prevention T1D Risk Assessment Study

Imagine a future without type 1 diabetes (T1D).

Stanford TrialNet offers no cost risk screening for relatives (both adults and children) of people who have T1D, and innovative clinical studies testing ways to slow down and prevent disease progression. TrialNet is an international network of leading academic institutions, endocrinologists, physicians, scientists and healthcare teams at the forefront of T1D research. Our goal: a future without T1D.

If you have a relative with T1D, you are in a unique position to help us learn more about the disease and how to prevent it. TrialNet risk screening uses a simple blood test that can detect your risk of T1D years before symptoms may appear. Early detection is critical. If you are in the early stages of T1D, you may be eligible for a prevention study. Take the first step and get screened.

With three convenient screening options, getting screened is easier than ever. We can help you schedule an in-person appointment at Stanford, order an in-home test kit, or order a test kit to take to a local lab – all at no cost to you.
