Hi
My mom has  type 1 without insulin...I am worried I might get it. I have had numb face and numb body and had an anxiety attack a couple of weeks ago...I get shaky at around 3pm if I have not eaten anything. I do not drink..... What is the likely hood that I would get it from my mom.....

if your mom is not on insulin she is not a type 1 diabetic.

T1 diabetics require insulin, there is no way around that.
