A parent of a teen with type 1, who was recently diagnosed with a form of arthritis – entheritis-related arthritis – would love to connect with other parents whose children also have an arthritis dual diagnosis.
If anyone in the group can help her, I will direct her to this group.
Thanks – Joan
I was wondering if anyone ever responded to you? I was diagnosed with Type 1 at age 8 in 1983 and RA in 2005. Its been very tough living with both and hoped to find others that were dealing with the same issues for insight and ideas.
I was DX’d with type 1 in 1974 nd RA in 1999. I blog at RADiabetes.com. Love to have you drop by. I now know of 5 of us, of course there are many more, but we have two bloggers with T1 and RA. My firend Molly Schrieber (now were at Jax) also blogs about both. Both of us would delight in having anyone who wants drop by.
Thank you so very much for replying!! I am so excited to find there are others out there to connect with that have both – I can’t wait to check out your blog and get your insight. I have felt so isolated and that I may be the only one out there.
You’ve been battling these 2 diseases a long time. Thanks again for respoding!
Im not a parent, but was Dx’d with Type 1 in 1981 and with RA in 2011 (probably undiagnosed since 1994). i thought I was an anomaly as well. I would love to connect with others like myself.
