First I don't want anyone to get the wrong idea here, I'm not sitting here anxiously awaiting the day my son develops diabetes, trust me, I've just been told to watch for the symptoms (which duh, of course I will) Anyway, since I don't think anyone really knows the true probability of a sibling getting diabetes when another has it, it's kind of a "I won't know til he gets it" kind of thing. Obviously, everyone I've come into contact with asks me "what are the chances he'll get it too?" Well I have no idea since my daughter was not "at risk" for it either (no family history so it's not one of those things we thought we'd have to worry about) I'm debating on whether or not to start trial net with him. Does anyone know what age they start testing them at? Was the first or second dx harder? I definitely feel like if my son were to wind up having D, I'd be a alot calmer and relaxed about it since I've already been dealing with it for 4 years. I was so uptight when my daughter was first diagnosed but I feel we've settled into a good routine and since I've already made the mistakes with her, I won't make them again lol (poor firstborn children, always making the mistakes on them) The reason I thought to ask this today is because we saw a new ped for my son who obviously wanted to know about family history so of course when i mentioned my daughter with D, he told me to watch for symptoms and test his BG if I think anything is up. I would do that anyway if I truly felt I needed to, he just kind of brought the issue to light.
