Do you have children with Type 1 diabetes?

I have been assigned a paper to write about anything health-related, and I have decided to write my paper on Type 1 diabetes. My three year old cousin was diagnosed with T1 last year, and I would like to know if there are any parents/grandparents/siblings of those with this type of diabetes. Please answer this question with serious intentions! Thank you!

    First off I am sorry to hear about your cousin. I am a type 1 diabetic, i was diagnosed at age 29 which is strsnge. Of all diabetics 90 % are type 2 only 10 % are type 1 and of those 10 % about 95 % get it before their late teen years, I must just be lucky. I do feel lucky,
    lucky it was me and NOT my kids (age 8 & 10 at that time)

    lucky I was not a young child when I got it putting my parents through the hell and struggles of shots and all that.

    Lucky that I live in a time where we have insulin, and good rapid insulin and test meters.

    Lucky that there is only a 3 to 5% chance my kids can get it.

    So hopefully my insight has helped you
