The Environmental Determinants of Islet Autoimmunity (ENDIA) is a national observational study into the causes of type 1 diabetes in childhood.

The Environmental Determinants of Islet Autoimmunity (ENDIA) is a national observational study into the causes of type 1 diabetes in childhood.

The study seeks men, women and children living with type 1 diabetes who are about to welcome a new baby to the family to participate. Babies aged up to six months of age with a first degree relative (mum, dad, brother or sister) living with type 1 diabetes are welcome to enrol.

ENDIA aims to follow 1400 babies into childhood through regular follow-up with the family including questionnaires and collection of samples such as saliva and skin swabs. There are no interventions and there is no impact on usual healthcare.
