Question:

From Virginia, USA:

Is there a higher rate of Type 1 diabetes developing in the off-spring of a family with a known history of alcoholism? Several people have told me of circumstances where their daughter or son was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes and that their father, mother, or grandparents were alcoholics.

Answer:

The incidence of Type 1A or autoimmune diabetes is not increased in the families of alcoholics.
