Type 1 diabetes is an incurable autoimmune disease that strikes randomly and independently of personal lifestyle. 34,560 Danes and 50,000 Swedes are affected by the disease, which requires life-long, complicated treatment with insulin and places a great burden on patients around the clock. The total annual cost for the Swedish and Danish societies amount to more than EUR 650 million.

To delay the onset of type 1 diabetes for people at risk, these people must be identified. That is why DiaUnion Establishes a Screening Program for Type 1 Diabetes.
