Of course.  This makes perfect sense.  When pregnant, I am going to the
doctor AT LEAST every other week, and late in the pregnancy, twice weekly.
A diabetic man doesn't need to worry about things like that when having
another child, because his wife, one would assume, is not also diabetic.

Which gives rise to the question:  What would those statistics reflect if
type 1 diabetic women reproduced at an equal rate as type 1 diabetic men?
One can only wonder.  But I've always taken comfort in the fact that it
doesn't happen often.

Any time my son seems especially thirsty, though, I worry, so I end up
checking his blood sugar periodically.  Every time it is normal.  Sometimes
it is worth it for the peace of mind to check.
