  Purpose

The major goals of this project are to determine whether primary intervention through delayed introduction of dietary gluten is feasible and could reduce the incidence of islet autoimmunity in high-risk first degree relatives of patients with type 1 diabetes.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Effect of dietary intervention on the development of islet autoantibodies [ Time Frame: 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Primary outcome is to compare the prevalence of iselt autoantibodies between children participating in the dietary intervention and the control group.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Effect of dietary intervention on the development of Type 1 diabetes. [ Time Frame: 10 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Secondary outcome is to compare the prevalence of type 1 diabetes between children participating in the dietary intervention and the control group

Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Glutenfree diet
Glutenfree diet during the first year of life
Other: Glutenfree diet during the first year of life
Glutenfree diet during the first year of life
