Re: [IP] weight gain at infusion site?



A swollen tummy or beer belly can be a sign of Celiac disease, which is
found in 10 percent of those with Type 1.  You can develop it at any time,
so if you were tested once and were negative, it doesn't mean that you will
never develop celiac.

Those at high risk (ie. Type 1s) should be tested every couple of years.
