What causes type 1 diabetes in children?

Post by mooki » Thu Jan 18, 2018 1:21 am

The national ENDIA Study seeks pregnant women (or their partners or older children) who are living with type 1 diabetes to help us answer this question.

ENDIA seeks:
• Pregnant women with type 1 diabetes
• Men with type 1 diabetes whose partner is pregnant
• Children with type 1 diabetes whose mother is pregnant
• Babies aged up to 6 months of age whose mother, father or sibling have type 1 diabetes

Participation involves regular follow-up of the baby and family including questionnaires and collection of samples such as saliva and skin swabs. There is a regional program so families can participate from anywhere in Australia. Families receive $20 for each visit attended. Home visiting is offered where necessary.

If you, or someone you know, are interested in finding out more about the ENDIA Study, email the team at endia@adelaide.edu.au or go to the ENDIA website for more details: http://www.endia.org.au.

ABA Research Approval Number for the ENDIA study is 2016-2. Women's and Children's Health Network (WCHN) Human Research Ethics Committtee Approval Number HREC/16/WCHN/66
