genetic time bomb?

My father always told us to watch for signs of diabetes. his mother was a diabetic.

as far as I know, though, she was the only one in our family to have the disease.

not so with Drew's family. Drew's father has been a diabetic for over 30 years. Drew's uncle (his father's brother) is also a diabetic.

a few days ago Drew told me his older sister was diagnosed with diabetes about a month ago. and Drew was just tested for the disease -- he'll get the results in a few days.

I am hoping that he didn't pass that gene down to his kids....
