This study is to find out if taking an oral insulin capsule by mouth will prevent or delay diabetes in people whose relatives already have type 1 diabetes. If someone in your family has type 1 diabetes, you and other family members may have an increased risk for developing diabetes. If you have diabetes, your body fails to produce enough insulin.
