Research: Causes and Prevention
Question from Lindsay, Ontario, Canada:
Is there a relationship between a mother having hypoglycemia (worse when pregnant) and her child/children developing type 1 diabetes?
If your own hypoglycemia had been a reflection of inadequate nutrition during pregnancy, that could have been a cause of type 2 diabetes in your child. However, I do not think that there is any such link with type 1A (autoimmune) diabetes.
