Does anyone know what the likelihood of passing on type 1 diabetes is? I have read in places that it is considered non-hereditary, due to it being an auto-immune disorder, but recently my endocrinologist told me that since I have two auto-immune disorders (diabetes and thyroid issues), my children have a 25% chance of getting it as well. So now I'm paranoid. I have a two year old and one on the way…I don't want them to have to deal with this!
