Does having a baby (babies) with a diabetic put the baby (babies) at risk even more?
There is a genetic component to diabetes.
I think the risk is more from lifestyle. If a diabetic has a child, they will probably have much the same diet and lifestyle habits, putting the child at greater risk of developing diabetes. With type one diabetes I think there may be a more direct genetic link/risk.
I AGREE WITH ANDREW HARVEY ABOUT THE GENETIC FACTOR,MOM WILL HAVE TO WATCH DIET.
There is a predisposition factor which. There are other factor but I want to shine light on predisposition. This will determine if the baby will have diabetes perhaps in the futures. Some race are more prone to diabetes than others. African Americans are one of those groups- while others can have diabetes this race is more prone to it . Hope this helps.
