Diabetes

Patient

Q: I've 3 sons and 1 daughter, my second son had Diabetes 6 years ago when he
was 6 years old, my other son had Diabetes 4 months ago, when he is 9
years old, now I just realize that my small Daughter 5 years old have high
blood sugar, still only my old son 13 years old.

I need to know if this disease is genetic, but myself and my wife both
don't have Diabetes, also our parents don't have it, please tell me what
I've to do? I am afraid for my old Son now, is there anything I can do to
avoid?
