Type 1 diabetes prevention

Endocrine and Psychiatry Center

Dear EPC Patients and Family Members,


The early screening and detection of Type 1 Diabetes is very important for prevention and management of the condition. In fact, there is a 15x increased risk of developing T1D if there is a family history. Based on your patient’s family history, we recommend Type 1 Diabetes Autoantibody screening to help with possible earlier detection of the condition. Teplizumab is the first FDA approved drug that can delay the onset of Type 1 Diabetes and can be initiated early in the disease process.


Below are the labs and codes for ordering Type 1 Diabetes Autoantibodies at any local lab.


If your patient's autoantibodies are positive then please call our office (832-593-8100) so we can get them scheduled as soon as possible.
