I understand there is a test for kids that are at risk for Diabetes. From what little I have heard it involves antibodies. A young member of my church gave her testimony and revealed she was positive for all four antibodies. Is this related to the celiac test? Anyone with more information please reply. TY

Type 1 diabetes (rather than type 2) is confirmed by tests for certain antibodies. I'm not aware of any antibodies that can show that children have an increased risk of diabetes but there are certain genetic markers that can be tested for. Without knowing what the person was talking about it's very hard to know what to make of it.
