The ELSA Study

The ELSA study launched nationally on World Diabetes Day in November 2022. Within 24 hours, over 1000 children were signed-up to the study! By February 2023, we have sent over 3000 home-testing kits out to families and have analysed over 1000 kits so far. The next phase of the study is to disseminate to schools and general practices across the UK. A huge thank you to the parents and children who have taken part in the ELSA study.
