Taking Steps Forward in Type 1 Diabetes: Screening and Staging

Wednesday, September 28, 2022

6:00 pm – 7:00 pm  ET



Each year in the United States there are approximately 64,000 new diagnoses of type 1 diabetes (T1D), the second most common childhood disease. Approximately 25% of newly diagnosed patients present with life-threatening diabetic ketoacidosis, which is a result of acute, severe hyperglycemia, suggesting that T1D may be unrecognized until overt hyperglycemia occurs. In this virtual symposium, we will learn about the importance of early identification of children at risk and the immune agents that can delay the decline in beta cell function.
