Celiac Disease and/or Type 1 Diabetes Study for Children and Teens 8 to 17

Why are we doing this research?

Cincinnati Children’s is conducting a research study, sometimes known as a clinical trial or clinical study, to look at risk factors for development of vascular disease in children and teens with celiac disease and/or type 1 diabetes.

Who can participate?

Children and teens 8 to 17 years old who have been diagnosed with either celiac disease or type 1 diabetes or both may be eligible to participate.


  • Diabetes - Endocrinology - Metabolism
  • Gastroenterology - Digestive Tract - Stomach - Liver

What will happen in the study?

This study includes one study visit to Cincinnati Children’s.

Participants will:

  • Have a blood draw
  • Have height, weight and blood pressure measurements

Parents interested in having their child participate and potential participants will be given a consent form that thoroughly explains all of the details of the study. A member of the study staff will review the consent form with you and will be sure that all of your questions are answered.

What are the good things that can happen from this research?

Your child will not have a direct medical benefit. However, the information we learn from this study may help other children with celiac disease and/or type 1 diabetes in the future. We hope that we will know more about the increased risk of children with celiac disease and type 1 diabetes developing vascular disease at a younger age.

What are the bad things that can happen from this research?

There is very little risk to participants in this research study. Possible risks and discomforts will be discussed with parents or guardians interested in learning more about the study.

Will you/your child be paid to be in this research study?

Participants will receive $20 for one study visit.
