Re: [IP] Parents & Children with Type 1

Does anyone know why there is a difference in risk if you have a baby before 
age 25 versus after age 25?  Seems silly to have a baby before 25 as a 
diabetic woman since your risk quadruples.

<<In general, if you are a man with type 1 diabetes, the odds of your
child getting diabetes are 1 in 17.  If you are a woman with type 1
diabetes and your child was born before you were 25, your child's risk
is 1 in 25; if your child was born after you turned 25, your child's
risk is 1 in 100.>>
