The development of multiple islet autoantibodies (IA) predicts progression to type 1 diabetes (T1D), and forms the basis of current staging of T1D. However, age at seroconversion, persistence of IA, and frequency of sampling influence the determination of multiple IA status. Individual IA may appear at different timepoints and fluctuate. This analysis aims to understand how differences in the stringency of multiple IA status definition impact risk estimates of progression to stage 3 T1D.
