A simple blood test can detect increased risk for type 1 diabetes up to 10 years before symptoms appear.
The free tests will be administered at Health Sciences North's diabetes care service centre.
To make an appointment you must have a relative with type 1 diabetes.
The tests are available for people between the ages of one and 45 if they have direct relatives with type 1 diabetes.
If a family member is a second-degree relative, such as a cousin, aunt or uncle, the test is available for people between the ages of one and 20.
