Back to Surveys Diabetes and Allergy Survey

This survey is closed.

Dear friend of Children with

If you had participated in the previous survey in this website, I thank you wholeheartedly for your participation. The results of that survey produced more interesting questions which are important in understanding the cause of type 1 diabetes.

The following are the questions that I would appreciate it very much if you would answer them with your best recollection. (The answers can be given by parents of the patients). All the questions are directed at the patient.

Thank you,
