Type 1 diabetes risk can now be determined with a single blood test
Members of the Australian Type1Screen and International TrialNet Teams have been able to demonstrate that the risk of disease progression can be accurately determined with just a single blood draw. This is in contrast to the rather onerous five blood samples required during an OGTT (oral glucose tolerance test).
This is great news for our at-risk families making Type1Screen and other type 1 diabetes monitoring programs even simpler and more convenient.
