Can a unborn child get diabetes from diabetic father ?
The fasting blood sugar was 123 and post lunch it was 183 for my friend. There was no detection of diabetes earlier so did not recheck it. After 3 months of this, now his wife is pregnant . Would this impact the child?
Thanks for query,
As a hereditary tendency his child may get diabetes in the future.
it is not necessary that during conception father had diabetes so a child will be diabetic.
His child may not be diabetic in future too.
Ok and bye.
