From Longmont, Colorado, USA:

I am 18 years old, have diabetes, and I plan on getting married to my high school sweetheart in four to seven years. I just found out the risk percentage of inheriting type 1 diabetes. Now that I know the risk, is there any way I can keep my kids from inheriting the disease, or, at least, delay it?


Currently, there is no way to prevent diabetes in offspring.
