[IP] An interesting piece:

>From the endocrine web

"Type 1 Diabetes tends to have less tendency to have other family members
affected with diabetes than Type 2. In the first large family study of
diabetes, less than 4% of parents and 6% of siblings of a person with
diabetes also had diabetes. In studies with identical twins less than 50% of
the siblings of a person with diabetes also had diabetes versus almost 100%
of siblings of people with Type 2 Diabetes. Children of Type 1 diabetic
fathers are more likely to develop Type 1 autoimmune diabetes than children
of Type 1 diabetic mothers."

One thing to keep in mind is that identical twins have identical genes, and
therefore identical genetics.
