My husband has T1 and unfortunately, it is riddled throughout BOTH our families in 3 generations. I am now expecting a baby in January and we're terrified that our child will develop T1. We met with a genetic counselor who told us the chances of our child developing it were about 10-15% based on family history alone, with the general population's chances being .002%. We have decided to bank the baby's cord blood for the stem cells and we're choosing a pediatrician based at one of the best hospitals in NJ, which has a fantastic diabetes center. My husband really suffers because of this disease (he's having bs control problems and extreme lows/highs daily) and it worries me constantly. I'm just hoping for some support and if anyone has any insight or advice to share, I'd love to hear it. Thank you!
