Oral Insulin for Prevention of Diabetes in Relatives at Risk for Type 1

In Type 1 diabetes mellitus the body does not produce enough insulin, which is required to convert sugar and other food into energy for the body. The disease is typically diagnosed in children and young adults and requires lifelong insulin therapy. This study is looking at administering oral insulin to patients with risk factors for developing diabetes to see if it will prevent or delay the development of the disease.
