I am 37 year old mom with type 1diabetes of 16 years (managed by an insulin pump, measuring all my food, etc) and my thyroid was removed 17 years ago due to another auto immune disease I had called graves disease. With no thyroid for 17 years I have managed it with a pill:)

I'm a type 1 diabetic with another auto immune disease called hashimotos disease which means that i have an under active thyroid which i take 1 tablet every morning for life, a piece of cake compared to diabetes.

Hey! Im new to this website. Ive had type 1 for 13 years, but have had celiac for 3 and just got done with my freshman year of college. I can definitely say that having to be on a GF diet in college is really hard for me. As time went on my stomach has been getting worse and worse, when i was first diagnosed i could eat some things with cross contamination and be fine. But as soon as i made the college transition I became more sensitive and had a stomach ache almost every single day, even when eating things that were supposed to be GF. Any advice on getting through this?

@ Roxyann Ruiz;

Sarchoidosis is hereditary as well as being an auto-immune disorder which Diabetes type 1 is. I have some symptoms of of it, like the issue with a painful sternum, and issues with weakness of breathing. I have also had it show up on an xray of my liver, so not really sure. The last xray, it was gone, so again, the docs don't really know and are assuming the inheritance and immune disorder that caused the diabetes as the likely causes. However, I am also a smoker, so they are not really sure.

My father has it really bad, non-smoker, but has had the tumors show up in his kidneys, lungs, pancreas and liver at different times in the past. He is now 84 and doing ok, considering his other health issues, bad heart, bad fluid drainage from his head, which causes severe physical disorientation, ie he falls a lot. He has had 3 different surgeries to help with the fluid drainage, and they can not do a 4th one, even though he does severely need it.

Anyway, it 'appears' to run along side with inheritance AND auto-immune disorders, so it would not surprise me if they found that in you. I would warn though, that it is frequently incorrectly diagnosed, so as always, get a second official opinion from someone that truly handles those types of cases.

Anyone here also having problems with Sarcoidosis on top of being a type 1 diabetic.

Comment by Bert on April 19, 2013 at 7:20am

Hello, I am new to this group; having just joined. I have had Diabetes for about ten plus years now; but also have a host of other diseases.
I have had a heart attack, have borderline high blood pressure and have had a kidney removed because of a growth in the bad kidney.
The only thing good with my health is that my cholesterol is very low, but then the HDL (good cholestrol) is also very low (less than 25.)
Does anyone on this forum have any advice for me? I am in reasonable good health and do a lot of walking as well as treadmill and elliptical machine exercise.
