Recent medical research suggests that children are more likely to develop type 1 diabetes if their mother developed in her childhood. Diabetic women should also try to ensure that their blood sugar levels are low and definitely under control before they even conceive. The risk of children developing type 1 diabetes can increase if both their parents have it, and depending on how old mothers were when they developed diabetes themselves. Risks of diabetes can increase depending on children’s ethnicity.
