i work in the medical field and came across some information about Roche pharmaceuticals requirements to update the warning leaflet in the Accutane package (revised January 2010). In the revised warning list, it now reads "Accutane may cause blood sugar problems and diabetes." it is not in my nature to try and find a "reason" for me having type 1; however, i took Accutane twice, once in 1996-97 and again (stronger dose) in 2001-02. i was diagnosed with type 1 in 2008, at age 38. i know one must be careful when reading info on the internet, but i have been reading claims from many other people who took Accutane and have been diagnosed with T1; some took the drug years before their official diagnosis. my aim is not to start a fight against Roche (although they are involved in numerous class action lawsuits for Accutane causing other autoimmune disorders). i am really just wondering if there are any other T1 tudiabetes members who have taken Accutane, and who have had a later onset diagnosis (over the age of 30) of Type 1, LADA or 1.5.
