Re: [IP] Diabetic Gene

I've heard it said that the chances of having a fisrst incidence of Type 1
in a family are ~6%, but that after that the percentages increase for each
succesive child.  In the support group I go to, most all of us are the only
diabetic in the family, however, one person has 4 siblings with Type 1, as
well as several in the previous generation.  I know that I've actually read
this in a published report, but can't lay my hands on it right now.
