The first 100 days 

Many people newly diagnosed with T1D can still produce insulin and are eligible for clinical trials that aim to understand how to protect the insulin-producing cells. The window for participation in these studies is usually limited to the first three months, or 100 days, following diagnosis.

At Breakthrough T1D, we want to make sure everyone is aware of clinical trials for the newly diagnosed so they can make an informed decision about participation.
