Re: [IP] RE: Diabetes & Down Syndrome


Congratulations on the birth of your new son.  I am sorry he will be facing
so many hurdles in his young life.  As far as diabetes being related to
Down's syndrome, are you just trying to prepare yourself for the posibility?
I would think that your son's pediatrician would be able to help you with
that question.

Best wishes for you and your family.

By the way, where do you live in New Zealand.  I have a cousin in Wanganui.
