Diagnosis and Symptoms

Question from Palisade, Colorado, USA:

My eight year old daughter, recently diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, was born with low blood sugar so she was put on the bottle until I was able to nurse a day later. Was this a sign that she might develop diabetes?

Answer:

There is no link between hypoglycaemia at birth and developing type 1 diabetes later in life.
