Welcome to the SEARCH Study

SEARCH for Diabetes in Youth is a national multi-center study aimed at understanding more about diabetes among children and young adults in the United States. SEARCH Study centers are located in five states - South Carolina, Ohio, Colorado, California, and Washington. Some centers have various locations within each state. SEARCH is funded by the Centers for Disease and Prevention (CDC) and the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK).

SEARCH has been helping to find answers about the types of diabetes, its complications, and how having diabetes affects the lives of children and young adults.

SEARCH was launched in 2000 and will continue at least through 2015. There are more than 20,000 study participants representing all different racial and ethnic backgrounds who have helped SEARCH determine the extent of diabetes in the community and its impact on different populations.
