From Berkeley, California, USA:

My boyfriend has had Type 1 diabetes since he was 16 years old (he is 31 now). Could you please tell more about a blood test which can detect diabetes in a future baby? How soon a pregnant woman has to take this test? Where?


As far as I know there is no test, genetic or otherwise, that can predict if a future baby will develop diabetes.
