A Pilot Study of Biomarkers of Stress in Youth Who Use Teens.Connect

What is the purpose of this trial?

This feasibility/pilot study has three purposes. First, the investigators will determine the feasibility of collecting saliva to measure stress biomarkers over three days at home in youth. Second, the investigators will conduct a pilot study of the Teens.Connect Internet program for youth with type 1 diabetes to determine whether changes in stress biomarkers associate with self-reported perceived stress and HbA1c. Third, the investigators will examine the gene-environment interaction of the top 14 targeted candidate genes and epi-genome wide effects of teens' stress biomarkers and its influence on blood glucose levels over time.
