    Hello Everyone!

    Happy Monday! If you're in Boston, hope you're enjoying this terrible rain. :sad3:

    MyType2 has been receiving a lot of interesting information from diabetics - regarding the role that genetics play in your chances of getting type 2 diabetes.

    This is an interesting topic to us, as it relates directly to the kind of information we are trying to gather for our teen audience - just now learning that they have type 2 diabetes or have become pre-diabetic.

    So what do you think? Do genetics play a huge role in getting type 2 diabetes? As big of a role as lifestyle does? What would you recommend to those faced with the risk of inheriting type 2? Leave your opinion, and stories with us at: http://www.pbs.org/mytype2/share-your-stories, and help our audience become more aware of their situation.

    Thank you!
