From your own source:

Type 1 diabetes

In most cases of type 1 diabetes, people need to inherit risk factors from both parents. We think these factors must be more common in white people because white people have the highest rate of type 1 diabetes.

Because most people who are at risk do not get diabetes, researchers want to find out what the environmental triggers are. One trigger might be related to cold weather. Type 1 diabetes develops more often in winter than summer and is more common in places with cold climates. Another trigger might be viruses. It’s possible that a virus that has only mild effects on most people triggers type 1 diabetes in others. Early diet may also play a role. For example, type 1 diabetes is less common in people who were breastfed and in those who first ate solid foods at later ages.

Stop trying to spin facts to fit your narrative

Yes but you stated diet and exercise as triggers for it to develop and that's flat out wrong. Well diet is correct but it's concerning breastmilk. The way you phrased it insinuates that infants and you children trigger their own type 1 diabetes by poor diet and lack of exercise, or conversely can be prevented the same way, and, *while the environmental contributing factors are still being discovered and studied, what you said is absolutely incorrect.

Who stated it was strictly genetic? The topic was diabetics needing insulin to survive and you jumped in with your initial "Not all diabetics are type 1", which was and still is (despite your on going refutations and justifications) irrelevant to whether people die without insulin. It's true there are other things that *help but none of those things replace insulin as absolutely necessary for survival
