for the early detection
of Type 1 Diabetes
We are an Australasian team of doctors, nurses, scientists, and academics dedicated to the early identification and prevention of type 1 diabetes (T1D). Type1Screen is a not for profit organisation.
Type 1 diabetes is a lifelong condition. We don’t know what causes type 1 diabetes, and there is currently no cure.
Compared to the general population, family members of people living with type 1 diabetes have a higher risk of developing the condition.
Early detection of type 1 diabetes can prevent serious physical health problems and bring about a better prognosis and management of the condition in the longer term. A blood test can accurately predict whether you, or your child, will develop type 1 diabetes.
Ultimately, the Type1Screen team want to see a world where type one becomes type none.
