My dad had type 1 diabetes & I want to know the risk of also getting it. I am 14 & he died from it?
My daughter's dad has type 1 and I had her checked by an endocrinologist and he said her chance of getting it was 25%. I hope that helped answer this for you. My daughter is 19, a bit heavier than she should be and is diabetes free. The doc said there is slightly more risk if you are overweight, my daughter is and she still does NOT have diabetes and is taking steps to get healthier.
