What will I be asked to do?

Sign up and provide consent online and answer some clinical questions. A sample kit for a small capillary blood sample will be sent to you in the post with instructions on how to take the sample at home. Please return the sample by post in a pre-paid envelope. We will test for four different islet autoantibodies and communicate the results.

Who is running this study?
