Screening Information

WHAT IS SCREENING ALL ABOUT?

ASK is a FREE health screening for Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) and Celiac Disease for ALL Colorado children (ages 1–17), and their parents, including those with NO family history of either disease.
 

  • When you sign up for screening through the ASK Program, a small amount of blood will be collected
     

  • This blood will be tested for markers, called autoantibodies, which are the first signs of type 1 diabetes and/or celiac
     

  • You will be contacted with the results of the screening
     

  • If the results are positive, we would confirm these results and provide free follow-up; the ASK Follow-Up Program is there for you if your child is screened positive

Your participation in the ASK Research Program could help change the standards for pediatric care by helping scientists at the Barbara Davis Center for Diabetes assess the benefits and cost-effectiveness of universal screening for Type 1 Diabetes and Celiac Disease — the two most common autoimmune diseases of childhood.

Know your child's status so you can be prepared.
