Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) develops when the immune system mistakenly attacks healthy insulin-producing cells and destroys them. TrialNet is a research study conducted at CareMount Medical with a goal to detect T1D in its earliest stage and slow down or stop disease progression.
Relatives of people with T1D are 15 times more likely to develop the disease compared to the population. Screening is offered free to relatives to evaluate their personal risk of developing the disease. This unique screening can identify the early stages of T1D years before any symptoms appear. It also helps researchers learn more about how T1D develops and plan new studies exploring ways to prevent it.
