[IP] Mumps and DM



From: email @ redacted
Subject: Re: [IP] Re: Diabetes auto-immune disease

Hi

Yes, I had a flu like virus and also it was followed by the mumps, whopping
cough, measles and chicken pox and the final results was diabetes at the age
of 9.

DM after mumps is common, the virus for mumps infects the pancreas as well as
the parotid glands and if the pancreas is damaged you can get dm. because your
islet cells leak stuff that triggers the T-cell killing mechanism. the same
mechanism rarely affects the parotid glands and some folks find they don't
salivate as well. spot
