Connor was the first person found to be eligible for the Type 1 Diabetes Prevention Trial when he was 11. Connor’s Aunty has type 1 diabetes and this meant that he and his brother could both have the blood test for antibodies to see if they were eligible for the trial. Connor’s blood test showed that he is at high risk of developing diabetes in the future and this meant he could become the first person to participate in the trial. Connor now visits the hospital every 6 months for an Oral Glucose Tolerance Test.
