As screening initiatives are being set up internationally, and with the availability of clinical coding for presymptomatic type 1 diabetes (T1D), an increasing number of people are being identified with T1D before they need insulin treatment. These people need careful support and care and it falls on us in secondary care to provide this. This session will outline the different screening initiatives around the UK, the approaches to managing early T1D and review some case histories.

The learning outcomes are:

  • Presymptomatic type 1 diabetes can be detected a number of years before the onset of symptoms
  • Early detection of T1D has advantages
  • Screen detected T1D has a milder clinical presentation and lower insulin requirements and requires a personalised insulin regimen

Certificates of attendance will be issued to those who attend the live webinar.
