Unhappy

Hmmm...

...as a diabetic with good control of my condition I would be less than happy at the insurers poking around in my offspring's genetics.

Its bad enough I have to justify my continued driving every three years due to my injecting insulin every day - though I can (with my rational side) understand why it so important to keep a check on it. (Cue the joke about wanting to die peacefully in my sleep, not screaming and crying like my passengers). I wouldn't want my kid(s) to be marked for higher insurance on the off-chance they developed the condition.

Watching this issue with guarded interest...
