With The Type 1 Test,

you can see type 1 diabetes coming

THE TYPE 1 TEST

The Type 1 Test can detect type 1 diabetes (T1D) before there are symptoms.

It does this by looking for diabetes-related autoantibodies.

If the test finds 1 autoantibody, you are more likely to develop T1D than someone with no autoantibodies.

If the test finds 2 or more autoantibodies, you are likely in the early stages of T1D. This means your immune system has begun attacking beta cells that produce insulin, and you could eventually become insulin dependent.

Why get tested?

Understand symptoms beforehand to help avoid serious complications

By knowing if you or your child is in the early stages of T1D, you’ll be better prepared to recognize symptoms when they do appear. This can help you avoid serious complications, like diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA).

Prepare for success

Living with T1D means taking on new responsibilities, and there is a learning curve that comes with managing it. Getting tested now and knowing if you or your child will become insulin-dependent can give you the opportunity to start developing the skills needed to manage T1D.

GETTING THE TYPE 1 TEST

How does the test work?

Take the test at home, at a participating lab, or at a doctor’s office.

The small blood sample is checked for autoantibodies at the lab.

You will be notified of your results and next steps to discuss with your doctor.
