The familial tendency of diabetes has been recognized for centuries. The genetic studies of Pincus and White (1933), Steinberg and Wilder (1952), Post (1962), and others seem to indicate that diabetes is transmitted as a simple autosomal recessive trait. If this is so, it is obvious that the tendency to diabetes must be established at the moment of conception. What does this tendency to diabetes consist of, and what determines when the disease we have called "diabetes" will appear? What is the status of the predisposed individual prior to the onset of overt diabetes?
