Are you a pregnant woman or a dad-to-be with type 1 diabetes?

The ENDIA study - an observational study researching the causes of type 1 diabetes

We are asking women who are pregnant and have Type 1 Diabetes themselves or have a family member with Type 1 Diabetes who would be a first-degree relative of the baby, i.e. the baby’s father or the baby’s older sibling, to consider participating.

Throughout Australia, we will follow 1400 women in their pregnancies and the babies born from those pregnancies. The initial period of the study is three years; however, we hope to continue following the children into adolescence.

Anticipated date that enrolment will close: Ongoing

Who can take part

  • Category 1: A pregnant woman with type 1 diabetes
  • Category 2: A pregnant woman whose unborn baby's father has type 1 diabetes
  • Category 3: Pregnant women with an existing child that has type 1 diabetes who will be a sibling of the expectant baby
  • Category 4: A baby less than 6 months of age that has a parent or sibling with type 1 diabetes

If you live in a regional area, you might be eligible to participate in ENDIA's Regional Participation Program. The Regional Participant Program has been designed to incorporate as much of the ENDIA study that can be safely and effectively performed by participants in their own homes or with the assistance of a health professional such as a local GP or endocrinologist.
