 Relatives of Type 1 Diabetes sufferers urged to help protect future generations  

News Content

The NIHR Sheffield Clinical Research Facility is asking relatives of people with Type 1 Diabetes to take part in clinical research, which involves having a blood test and providing some family history, to help protect future generations from the disease. It is hoped that the finding will enable people to know if they are at risk because of a family link, before symptoms appear. The South Yorkshire TrialNet study is part of an international research programme originating from the United States, and is a partnership between Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, the NIHR’s South East Midlands Diabetes Research Network and South Yorkshire Comprehensive Local Research Network.
