How many people in your immediate family have type 1 diabetes?

Poll dates: February 27 - March 6, 2005
Total Votes: 1,001

The majority of visitors to our web site (72%) report having only one child with type 1 diabetes in their family. Since most kids who are diagnosed don't have type 1 diabetes in their family, this makes sense. The results of this week's poll match very closely with the last time we ran it in October 2001.

The Risk of Developing Type 1 Diabetes summarizes the science as it is presently understood.
