Did you end up starting Accutane? If so, how's it going?
I passed my 2nd blood test two weeks ago and am taking Claravis right now (generic Accutane/Isotretinoin). So far everything is going well, but I'm having an odd blood sugar spike today, and I'm getting worried that it's messing up my blood sugar! I'm just going to keep drinking water and testing today...maybe I wasn't given a true "diet coke" at the place I had lunch at today...you never know!
Just came across this post as I was Googling connections between Accutane and Type 1 diabetes. I cannot believe the number of people that have been diagnosed with Type 1 after taking this medication. I took Accutane for six months, starting Dec. 2008 through the end of May 2009, right after my 21st birthday. I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in April of 2012, right before my 24th birthday. Has anyone heard of any updates on a link between the two?
I took Accutane in the mid nineties. 94 or 95 I think when I was 16 or 17. I developed LADA when I was 32. No real family history of diabetes, just a few distant relatives with T1, Great Aunts on each side of my family so the predisposition may have been there.
