Two other ladies who were very kind and hard working were Suzanne and Emma,they were administrative staff who worked in the same area as us data compliance analysts.

They are two very nice women who always looked well and enjoyed fashionable clothes!

I like fashionable clothes myself and we all enjoyed looking at the Avon catologue during our lunch break!

Emma was once the winner of a beauty contest in Tramore and had her picture taken in one of the local newspapers,I think it was the Waterford News And Star!

Suzanne is very pretty too and was always slim and fit because she did a lot of walking!

Do you like fashionable clothes if so please let me know and leave a comment below about what type of clothes you like to wear and what era!

If you have type 1 diabetes, your first-degree relatives (i.e. mother, father, brother, sister, and your children) are about ten times more likely than the general population to get type 1 diabetes.

The frequency of type 1 diabetes in the general population is about half a percent (i.e., one in two hundred), so the risk in your first-degree relatives is about 5%.

Fortunately, this is not particularly high.

About 90% of cases of type 1 diabetes occur before age 35.

Therefore, the parents of a person with type 1 diabetes are at considerably less, and ever decreasing, risk compared to his or her siblings and children.

The risk of getting type 1 diabetes for an identical twin of a person with type 1 diabetes is 30%.

In the case of type 2 diabetes, the risk is considerably higher.

On average, one out of three of the children of an individual with type 2 diabetes will develop the disease.

Two out of three of the children will develop diabetes when both parents have the disease.That’s because if the two parents are living an unhealthy lifestyle that means the children are too!

The risk of getting type 2 diabetes for an identical twin of a person with type 2 diabetes is 75% because they also would be living an unhealthy lifestyle!
