The answer is 4
Rationales:
1. Both type 1 and type 2 diabetes have a genetic component.
2. An age of 32 at time of diagnosis would be suggestive of type 2 rather than type 1 disease; however, both can occur across a wide distribution of ages.
3. Height and weight measurements suggest that the client is overweight, which can be present in type 1 or type 2 diabetes.
4. Requiring daily insulin injections from the time of diagnosis suggests absolute absence of insulin in the body, which is characteristic of type 1 disease.
