What are the chances of my other children developing diabetes? My oldest was DXed at age 7, so it's hard not to wonder if our other children will also get D. I have been going back and forth about doing TrialNet, not sure if I want to know, or if it will make me worry more if one or more of my kids turns up positive. On the other hand, a heads-up might be helpful, to know which kids to watch more closely. Not that I don't watch for signs in all of them. What do the studies say about siblings developing D? Is there a way to know how hereditary it is, or if it's just a "fluke?" My DH's cousin's baby was recently DXed, and DH has a first cousin on the other side of his family who id type 1, but I don't think it's very common in either of our families. And while I'm at it, what about children of Type 1 parents? (A few weeks after DX, he asked about if his kids would have D. I didn't know.) What do you think about statistics and how it relates to individuals? Thanks!
