 ASK the Experts support for 
PATIENTS WITH A NEGATIVE SCREENING TEST FOR T1D-ASSOCIATED ANTIBODIES 

A negative autoantibody result does not mean a person will never develop type 1 diabetes.  We recommend re-screening for T1D associated autoantibodies depending on the person's personal and family history of autoimmune diseases.

  • No personal history of autoimmunity
     

  • No family history of autoimmune disease

Repeat screening

  • Between ages 4-6 years

  • Between ages 11-12 years.

  • At any time a patient has symptoms of hyperglycemia in addition to HbA1c and blood glucose   

  • Personal history of autoimmunity and/or
     

  • Family history of autoimmune disease

Repeat Screening Annually
