    To all type 1 diabetics and parents of type 1 diabetics,

    The survey, "Type 1 Diabetics and Antibiotics" was created for you to answer. The goal in creating this survey was to see if antibiotics could potentially increase the risk of developing type 1 diabetes in those who are genetically predisposed. If you are the parent/guardian of a child diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, you are encouraged to answer for your child. The survey is composed of 26 multiple choice questions, which should take 20 minutes, maximum, to complete. Here is the link to the survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/type1diabetesandantibiotics. If you have any questions, comments, concerns, or feedback, please post here, or send me a PM
    Your time is a great help and greatly appreciated.

    All the best,

    Joy S.

    Got to Q12 and have to give-up @Joy_S.

    I was diagnosed with type 1 in my late teens and it would be impossible for me to remember how many times I'd taken antibiotics or which type they were, at best any answers would just be a guess so not very accurate for research purposes.

    The opening page of the survey states that this is for T1s who are 18 and under, or parents of T1s 18 and under (not for older people who were diagnosed at 18 and under). I guess this is to get around the problems of trying to remember from too far back. Copy-and-Paste is below.

    This is a survey for those 18 years and under or parent of children 18 and under. It is regarding your (or your child's) antibiotic use prior to your (or their) type 1 diabetes diagnosis.

    Any idea why you can't put your age in on the surgery?... Asks for your or your child's age.. then in years box, it'll only let you go up to 18?
