Before we begin, let’s check for eligibility:

Who is being screened?*
What is your date of birth?*
(example: 15/Jan/1988)
Do you currently reside in the United States or Puerto Rico?*
Have you ever been diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes?*
Do you have a relative diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes?*
* indicates a required field
Definitions:
  • Relatives may include: mother, father, sister, brother, daughter, son, aunt, uncle, cousin, grandmother, grandfather, niece, nephew.
  • Type 1 diabetes: Once known as juvenile diabetes or insulin-dependent diabetes, Type 1 diabetes is a chronic condition in which the pancreas produces little or no insulin, a hormone needed to allow sugar (glucose) to enter cells to produce energy. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease where the immune system mistakenly attacks the healthy beta cells that produce insulin.
  • Type 2 diabetes: Once known as adult-onset or noninsulin-dependent diabetes, Type 2 diabetes is a chronic condition that affects the way your body metabolizes sugar (glucose), your body's main source of fuel. With Type 2 diabetes, your body either resists the effects of insulin - a hormone that regulates the movement of sugar into your cells - or doesn't produce enough insulin to maintain a normal glucose level.

Screening through TrialNet is available to eligible family members of people with Type 1 diabetes
through an international research effort led by the National Institutes of Health.
