Like "Thanks you for tracking that down, Steve. Quoting from the article you posted, "In previous studies, fetal exposure to cigarette smoke has also been linked to higher rates of obesity and low birth weight. This study found that birth weight did not effect whether the daughters of smoking parents developed diabetes. "We found that smoking of parents is by itself a risk factor for diabetes, independent of obesity or birth weight," said La Merrill. "If a parent smokes, you're not protected from diabetes just because you're lean." I was doomed even before I was born. :~( At least I can stop blaming myself for it and move on. Just work with what I have and make the best of things."
