HI M -

I am not sure of the probabilities - however, I just wanted to make you
aware of the study now going on - it is open to relivtives of Type 1's -
and it tests for the antibodies that develop before actually devloping
diabetes.  DPT-1 is the
name of the study.... you can find more info out on www.trialpages.com

Does anyone know the probabilities of a sibling/relative becoming a
diabetic vs a person with no family history?  I recall hearing a while back
that there's a 1 in 7 chance if it's in the family and a 1 in 30 chance if
not. I'm not sure if this is accurate.
