Hi everyone…anyone know who have T1D with more than 3 in the same family. In my family my husband brothers have T1D.now my husband found that he has LADA.and my daughter also diagnosed now with him T1D😥
Here are two families of 4
Here is a family of three sons and her husband with diabetes.
By the way, Meri operates a wonderful blog.
Note: I am a Medtronic ambassador. My opinions are my own. They did not pay me to say nice things about Medtronic devices or the company. OK, they sent me a shirt and a cup but even I am more expensive than that.
I know a family where the father and two of the three children have type 1.
My brother and I have type 1, but we were both diagnosed as adults within a few years of each other. We have two siblings that do not have it. No other history of type1 diabetes in our family, just my brother and I.
My best friends mother had something like 6/8 siblings with type 1.
When I was at last summers TCOYD type 1 retreat, there was an announcement at the end about two families with multiple kids with diabetes to meet up in the back. And one of the speakers had sibling and son and himself with type 1. There are more out there than we think, i’m Sorry to say.
