Getting the right classification and treatment from diagnosis of diabetes

There are three main forms of diabetes: type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes and genetic diabetes.

The treatment for each is very different because they have different causes. It is not always easy for doctors to be able to say for certain what kind of diabetes a person has.

Getting the right diagnosis is important to know what treatment will be most effective.

The purpose of this research is to determine whether blood tests can help us improve treatment. These tests include antibodies against the cells that make insulin and a new test which assesses genetic risk of diabetes.

You may be eligible to participate if you were diagnosed with diabetes in the last 12 months and you were over 18 years of age at the time of your diagnosis.

The study involves 4 appointments (2 face to face and 2 by phone, email, post or in person) over a 3 year period.

The face to face appointments will involve collection of data about diagnosis and treatment, body measurements, blood and urine tests and questionnaires. The phone visits will include follow up and update of diabetes treatment and a further urine sample.

If you would like further information about this study and to receive a participant information leaflet, please contact the research nurse, Nicky McRobert.
