Posted On : 11 Feb 2021
If both parents are cases of IDDM, What is the chance of the child getting the same disease, and at what age the child can present?
Expert Answer :
For a man with type 1 diabetes, the odds of your child getting diabetes are 1 in 17. If a woman with type 1 diabetes and your child was born before you were 25, your child`s risk is 1 in 25` if your child was born after you turned 25, your child`s risk is 1 in 100.
Your child`s risk is doubled if you developed diabetes before age 11. If both parents have type 1 diabetes, the risk is between 1 in 10 and 1 in 4.

Type 2 diabetes runs in families. In general, if you have type 2 diabetes, the risk of your child getting diabetes is 1 in 7 if you were diagnosed before age 50 and 1 in 13 if you were diagnosed after age 50.
