Re: [IP] Causes of Type 1 (stress?)



How about being abused as a child,  I was under chronic stress and to top it off
month before my diagnosis I had to endure a physical exam for abuse.  I had to be
put to sleep and when I awoke I was starved and stayed that way until the DKAled
diagnosis. Sheila
