Family history of diabetes


I’m a type 1 diabetic and reporter at the Tuscaloosa News and am writing a story on diabetes within families. I’m trying to find families where more than one person in the family has diabetes. Whether it be a parent and child or multiple siblings or even husband and wife, I am open to anyone. If you know of anyone or would be willing to talk to me, send me an email at

Thank you!


You need Kelly Kunik, there are several in her fam with Type 1!! Her blog is and she is fantastic and loves talking to people! :slight_smile:

Hi Ashley! I’m third generation type 1, but I was also adopted as diabetes was a factor in the death of my birth mother, her brother, and my grandmother. My biological sister has no issues as far as diabetes but she does have problems with hypoglycemia. Im not sure I can be of help for you, but I will email you.
