The ELSA trial (EarLy Surveillance for Autoimmune diabetes)
24 Oct 2023
We just wanted to let you know about The ELSA Study.
If you’ve not heard of it before, The ELSA Study (EarLy Surveillance for Autoimmune diabetes) is a trail co-funded by JDRF and Diabetes UK screening children for type 1 diabetes.
The study is the first of its kind in the UK and will identify children at high risk of type 1 and will also support their families to ensure the earliest, safest diagnosis possible.
Children aged 3-13 years can have a simple finger stick blood test to find out their risk of developing type 1 diabetes in the future.
