My father was a type 1 diabetic and he passes when I was little. He only has 2 kids me and my older sister who is in her late 20s and I'm 17. She doesn't have diabetes or anything. I was diagnosed with Hypothyroid a month ago and I don't have diabetes. I'm always scared and freaking out that I will develop diabetes. I feel like one of his kids have to expecially sense I have Hypothyroid now. Is there a possibility that I won't get it and does it skip a generation? I am terrified that I'll develop diabetes. Im really stressed and cry about it often. Sense I already developed hypothyroid I'll probably also develop diabetes some time right?
