Let's put T1D to the test.

Together, we can change the way T1D is detected. With one blood test, we can now detect T1D in its earliest stages, before symptoms appear. That can help you and your loved ones be better prepared for T1D and help avoid serious complications, like diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA).

So take the Type 1 Tested Pledge—and raise awareness about T1D risk and the importance of screening early. By taking action now, we can help current and future generations get ahead of T1D and avoid DKA.
