What will happen in the study?

The study includes 1 or 2 study visits, with each visit lasting approximately 1 hour. You will be asked to provide some information about yourself or your child, and there will be a blood draw at each visit. Through a blood test, doctors can determine if you or your child may be at risk for diabetes. Should you or your child test positive for a risk to develop type 1 diabetes, you could take part in and be compensated for other study phases or prevention studies.

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

You or your child may receive no direct benefit from participating in this study. However, you may find out if you or your child are at risk for developing type 1 diabetes. The greatest benefit is that you may be contributing to research that may benefit other patients with diabetes in the future. Research studies are essential in finding new and improved treatments and diagnostic tools.

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

You or your child could have discomfort and/or a bruising from the blood draw. A detailed list of possible side effects will be provided to you, should you want to learn more about this study.

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

There is no cost to you or your insurance company, but compensation is not provided for this phase of the study. Should you or your child test positive for a risk to develop type 1 diabetes, you could take part in and be compensated for other study phases or prevention studies.
