Diabetes while on Accutane- What are the chances?

My mom's friend just informed her that someone she knew developed Pancreitis (sp?) and later diabetes while on accutane, and believe it was because of the medication.

My Dad is a Type I Diabetic.

I'm so worried that I might come down with this especially because it runs in my family.

What type of people does this usually happen to/ are at risk?

My dad has Type 1 and I am ok after 1 course of Accutane ten years ago. Going for another one soon. I honestly doubt it has anything to do with the medicine, but everyone has different side effects and complications. If it was from the med, it had to be an EXTREMELY rare case. Seriously, don't worry too much about this.
