How Does Family History Impact My Risk for Diabetes?

By ryandahlhauser ‐ August 9, 2023

Around 1/10 adults and 1/400 children have diabetes. Lifestyle can cause this but someone with a family history of it is more likely to get diabetes too. Genetic testing may be helpful when your family has diagnoses for children less than 6 months, or young adults in their 20’s or 30’s who are otherwise healthy. Incorporating your diabetes doctor with a genetic counselor is recommended if you have any concerns. Listen to this podcast with Dr. Toni Pollin, an expert in genetic factors pertaining to diabetes.
