RE: [IP] An interesting piece:



I understand that there is a 6% chance for the children to develop Type
I if the father has D and only a 2% chance if the mother does.  I
thought that was interesting.

>From the endocrine web
(http://www.endocrineweb.com/diabetes/1diabetes.html):

"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.
