Home Forums Living with type one Diabetes and Genetic Tests Re: Diabetes and Genetic Tests


Neither of my parents are diabetic. I have some uncles on my mum side that developed type two in there late 60’s. Historically the men on both sides of my family cop it very early most dont even make it to 50 on my dads side and my mums dad died when she was 14. My grandad on my dads side was diabetic and died before i was born and an uncle on my dads side lost both his legs to gangrene from poor diabetese care. They allways talk about things skipping generations so maybe the diabetese gene did. I have also read about the virus causing it so would be nice to actually know the facts about this.
