: diabeties is defintely hereditary and they usually ask you on questionaires if anyone in your family has it so go ahead and let the dr. now as a precaution.

Hello all,
: Sorry another question for you.
: A few years ago my husband met hes father and half sister for the first time in years.
: Well it turned out hes half sister became diabetic at the age of 13.

: Then 2 months ago like my husband i met my dad's side of the family and my cousin is a diabetic too shes only 16 and has had it since she was 5, She has a bad case of it and has to inject herself 4 times a day.

: Im worried now as its on both sides of the family do you think i should get my kids tested?
: and let my doctor know?

: Thanks
