Hello digabetic and welcome to dLife. Unlike you I have T2, but like you I have a family history of T2 (mother, father, sister [? T1 was diagnoised as T2 around the age of 28 -- 35 in the late 60's early 70's when they thought that only kids got T1], both grandmothers, and at least 1 aunt). Right now I'm on diet and exercise to control my diabeties but every now and then I need a good hug. Make sure to check out all of the forums I'm sure your insight could help everyone and who knows you might learn something you didn't know.
