I never knew that it could be the cause of what I have. I do have Type 1 Diabetes since I was 20 (now 55) and it was used to control ups and downs which worked great until I got sick. They tell me that if I were to have continued on it, I would get worse. When the stomach doesn't empty, it backs up and causes you to be sick but the symlin causes nausea also so I never related it to anything else. Good luck and be aware of any new symptoms you might have.
