Preventing Diabetes

Preventing Type 1 Diabetes in Relatives at Risk


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.

Who may qualify:

Males and females, ages 3 to 20, who have relatives with type 1 diabetes

Medication Under Study:
Oral insulin

Full IRB Study Title:
Oral Insulin for Prevention of Diabetes in Relatives at Risk for Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus
