A survey of nearly 60,000 children with T1D provides a full picture of how often DKA happens. Researchers have identified important differences in the occurrence of diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) in children living with type 1 diabetes (T1D). Their findings were presented at the 53rd Annual Meeting of the European Society for Paedeatric Endocrinology in Dublin, […]

A T1D Exchange study finds earlier diagnosis of type 1 diabetes and lower rates of DKA for children and adolescents of parents with type 1 diabetes. Children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes (T1D) who have at least one parent with T1D had less diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) at diagnosis and were diagnosed slightly sooner than […]

The picture above is our two boys holding their TrialNet letters stating that neither of them currently has any type 1 diabetes antibodies. I’m hoping that our family participating in preventative trials like these paves the way to (in the near future) no child or adult having to be diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. It’s […]
