Does anyone else have a strong family prevalence of type 1? I have some strong genetic diabetes likelihood on my dad’s side. My dad is one of 7 kids. I have 20 first cousins. Out of 20, three of us have type 1. One child to each of 3 brothers.
I don’t know of any of our children having type 1 yet, and none of our parents had it. Our grandparents didn’t, and neither did their siblings. Not sure about great grands. I assume it came from a great-great grandmother who died young at the turn of the century. My photo of her shows her looking frail. But she didn’t go to the dr. Oklahoma wasn’t even a state yet.
Or is my family a statistical anomaly?
