Question:

From Prodigy:

Just wanted to tell you within 5 years my dad, my daughter, and then the dog was diagnosed with insulin dependent diabetes. I wonder if it is not environmental or something.

Answer:

Rather a coincidence I admit; but I very much doubt if it was all due to a single environmental factor. Your father would almost certainly be Type 2 Diabetes and your daughter more likely the autoimmune Type 1. I'm not sure about the dog!
