• Bone Mineral Accrual and Microarchitecture in Youth with Type 1 Diabetes
Healthy girls ages 10-16 wanted for a research study of bone density

We are studying the effect of type 1 diabetes (also called juvenile diabetes) on bone density. We are seeking healthy girls without type 1 diabetes in order to compare them to girls with type 1 diabetes. The study involves 3 visits to Massachusetts General Hospital over a 2 year period. At each visit, we will measure bone density with x-rays and do blood and urine tests. Payment for participation is up to $150.
