Just to introduce myself my name is Tracy from Tulare, CA. A proud wife and mother. My Husband is a Type 1 diabetic ( dx @ 16 months )on the Omnipod since 6/2010 and both of my sons are also type 1. Michael age 8 dx 5/2008 on the Omnipod since 1/2009 and Owen is 6 dx with type 1 and hypothyrodism 7/2008 he is also on the Omnipod since 4/2010. He was also participating in TrailNet prior to dx where he was shown to be positive for the antibodies). I started this group to get to know other families that have multiple members with type 1.

If you have a partner or spouse with type 1 diabetes, check out the online program Just for Partners, offered by Behavioral Diabetes Institute.  It's free!

Thanks. :) I've been stopping by this site more often, now that I only have just one class to worry about at school.

Hello your family is the exact type of family I was looking for to be in this group. Welcome...

Hey, my name's Cara, and I'm not exactly sure if I am supposed to be in this group, but I'll try anyway. :) I'm type 1, dxd at age 8, and my dad is type 1 as well, dxd at age 21 I think. Both my cousins are type 1s as well, and they were both dxed recently. They are in their mid 20s (I'm 27, almost 28). That's all the type 1 that I'm aware of, thank goodness. I have a niece that was born 3 months ago, and I really REALLY hope that she never gets it.

Hello...I have two kids with diabetes. My daughter is 16 and was diagnosed at 4 and my son was diagnosed in Feb. 2009 at the age of 10. It's been interesting!

Hi, I'm Seda. I was diagnosed at age 12. My fiancé was diagnosed at age 3. We met during a diabetes camp. We plan to marry on September. My father and his father are also diabetic, but type 2. ;))

Hi, my name is Erin too! Hi Erin M. Whitcomb.
I was diagnosed 5/21/1972 at age 2 1/2 (tomorrow is my 37th anniversary!) and my brother, who is 3 years younger than me, was diagnose 6/15/1974 at the age of 23 mths. My mom did some family research and found that a Great-Great-Great grandmother somewhere on her side had diabetes, but I don't recall the details.

Hi. My name is Kimberly. Both of my children have T1. We do not have any previous family history of T1 before my kids were diagnosed. Trevor was dx at 4 yo and is now 10 yo. Taylor was dx at 6 yo and will be 8 in May.

hi my name is lev, i am a type 1 as was my father and two of my brothers. one of my brothers was not. i have 4 children also. three bays and a girl. two of the boys and the girl are all type 1. my brother (the one that has type that is still alive) has the same number of children as me. three boys and a girl. one boy and one girl and type 1. they say that typ 1 is only two percent genetic... i think that we got the whole two percent. it is an odd thing to be on a first name basis with most of the joslin clinic, from the admiting secrateries to the phlebotomist....
