Common Questions and Answers about Diabetes type 1 and vitiligo

diabetes

Avatar n tn Hi Doctor, recently about 1 and half years diagnosed with type 1and a half diabetes and now on a pump. I went from hashimotos to lupus to diabetes to vitiligo. I'm getting episodes of low blood pressure 84/54 with foggy head/lightheaded as well. blood sugers are ok at this time but recently had a bad flu with 101 fever. always am dehydrated though I drink 6-8 bottles of water daily. What to do when these episodes happen???? Is there a specific test I should have done????
Avatar m tn While researching ways to manage this condition, I found various websites linking Hashimoto's and Type I diabetes together. This has me somewhat freaking out! It seems like people who develop Type I diabetes can also complicate to Hashimoto's, but I haven't seen any reading about the other way around. How common is it for people to develop Type I diabetes if they have Hashimoto's first? Thank you everyone.
Avatar n tn But what I've come across regarding SPS notes an autoimmune process was originally postulated to underlie this syndrome since the disorder often occurred in conjunction with a variety of autoimmune diseases including thyroiditis, vitiligo, pernicious anemia, and (particularly) type 1 diabetes mellitus. However gestational diabetes is associated with the development later in life of type II diabetes (not an auto-immune process, but the due to insulin resistance).
Avatar m tn That is to say you son has more chance of developing Graves' Disease which is then a risk factor for Type 1 diabetes. Most Type 1 diabetics are diagnosed before the age of 13 however. Excessive urine is also a symptom of hyperthyroidism (Grave's Disease is the most common cause). Your son has a higher probability of being diagnosed with Graves' Disease. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease. The immune system attacks and gradually destroys the islet cells of the pancreas.
Avatar f tn Autoimmunes also tend to run in families, but not every member of a family will get the same condition... for instance, I have Hashimoto's and Pernicious Anemia, my son has Type 1 Diabetes and my daughter has Lupus. I believe my daughter also has Hashimoto's, but I don't think she's ever been tested for it. They're only testing her TSH which is falling in the normal range, so they aren't testing antibodies... crazy!!
Avatar f tn Keep in mind, too, that you may be more likely to develop Hashimoto's if you have one of these other conditions.

Avatar n tn Autoimmune hypothyroidism is more likely in those who have other conditions resulting from an autoimmune disorder such as type 1 diabetes mellitus, vitiligo and Addisons disease. I have problems with my thyroids and I have very bad vitiligo on my hands, legs, under arms when I go out in the sun it is very white and have to be very carefull not to burn. I do not understand what it means can anybody help me.....

Avatar n tn ) I do have vitiligo but it never spread past 2 fingers. I'm suffering! I'm young, I just finished my internship and I'm a registered Physical therapist with alot in me to give but this is debilitating and no one seems to understand how much I'm hurting because I go around smiling and treating patients and trying to be strong but I'm not sure how much else I can take. Do I do an EEG, EMG, NCV...Can anyone at all offer some advice...
Avatar f tn Both of these disorders may be associated with other autoimmune problems including Type 1 diabetes mellitus, Addison’s disease (adrenal insufficiency), vitiligo (loss of pigment of some areas of the skin), systemic lupus erythematosus, pernicious anemia, celiac disease, inflammatory bowel disease, myasthenia gravis, multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis.
Avatar n tn Graves disease is associated with pernicious anemia, vitiligo, diabetes mellitus type 1, autoimmune adrenal insufficiency, systemic sclerosis, myasthenia gravis, Sjögren syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, and systemic lupus erythematosus." Demyelination is a symptom of pernicious anaemia since vitamin B12 is essential for the maintenance of the myelin sheath that protects nerve cells. Antibodies seen with this autoimmune disease - intrinsic factor antibodies and parietal cell antibodies.
Avatar f tn Based on the survey results, the most common vitiligo-associated autoimmune diseases (VAAD) were hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism, rheumatoid arthritis, pernicious anemia, type 2 diabetes, alopecia areata, psoriasis, chronic urticaria, type 1 diabetes, ulcerative colitis, celiac disease, Sjögren’s syndrome, Raynaud’s disease, lupus, sarcoid, Crohn’s disease, dermatitis herpetiformis, Addison’s disease, and multiple sclerosis.
Avatar f tn My son was diagnosed with Type 1. diabetes when he was 10 years old. He is now 13 and I have noticed small areas on his neck that are very pale...Didn't see until he went swimming and was exposed to the sun. I have also noticed that his eyelashes ( both eyes ) are completely white over a small area. Almost looks like he had lint in his eyelashes until I looked very closely. Does this sound like vitiligo ?

Avatar n tn He said the rash that is big and red and burns and then turns leathery looking is more of a fungus type rash and is caused by interferon and should be treated with a fungus medicine like for a toenail and then of course the other rash,,,I am still using cortisone and creams but he claims the cortisone probably made this other rash worse. Well,,,,I went to get the fungus rash and started using it on this other weird rash,,,And Its Clearing!
Avatar f tn Vitiligo or hypopigmentation of the skin is an autoimmune disease, thyroid disease and pernicious anemia and celiac disease and parathyroid disease and type 1 diabetes and addison's are also types of autoimmune disease. With history of vitiligo I would be testing his thyroids yearly, but don't go crazy with T3, rT3 etc. Just get tsh and free T4 and antibodies.
Avatar n tn Vitiligo vulgaris, the loss of skin pigmentation, is known to occur with increased frequency in patients with type 1 diabetes and, based on a preponderance of circumstantial evidence , presumed to be of autoimmune etiology. For example, 20% of 39 patients with vitiligo were found to have diabetes in a Romanian community study , and 9% of 457 consecutive Italian patients with diabetes had vitiligo in another study (including 54% of the type 1 patients).
Avatar f tn Wow thank you guys. I have not been diagnosed yet (except that i am Hyper) .Actually i am still waiting for an appointment with an end. My fam. doctor has been doing the test.He also has tested me on the calcium. And actually i asked him to test me for graves. He had actually not a clue.
Avatar f tn autoimmune thyroid disease, myasthenia gravis and/or thymoma, Sjögren's syndrome, pernicious anaemia, idiopathic thrombopenic purpura, Addison's disease, type 1 diabetes mellitus, vitiligo, autoimmune haemolytic anaemia, systemic lupus erythematosus, dermatitis herpetiformis. The immune system marker HLA-B8 and/or DR3 or DR5 seems to be an important factor in Type 3 MAS. Other conditions found in various combinations in MAS: Type 1 MAS: pemphigus, autoimmune thyroid disease.
Avatar f tn Today I celebrate 1 year with LCHF, or I could say that I celebrate 1 year in good health! I can certainly endorse the LCHF diet as being good for type 1 diabetics. Besides a more stable blood sugar and a more easily managed diabetes, I’ve gotten rid of pain in my legs, headaches, GI problems, and constant throat infections. Previously, I had recurring yeast infections, but during this past year I haven’t had a single one! I only need one injection daily, instead of the previous 5-9.

Avatar n tn I have been told so many different different things. I am white, type 1 diabetic, and was slightly overweight. Over the last year and a half I have lost twenty pounds, and to my surprise the dark spots have vanished. I have also read that this can be contributed to polycystic ovarian syndrome. My doctor told me the best way to keep this at bay was to stay on a low dose birth control and get plenty of exercise.
Avatar m tn Apart from Type 1 diabetes and hashimoto's I have IBS and GERD. I take prozac, synthroid, seasonale and vitamin D. Yeah my endo is aware of the fever and the labs. For the high RBC she sent me to a hematologist, and the hematologist did a bit of additional testing and didn't find anything so that was that. :( Thanks for your help!
Avatar n tn This skin condition can be aggravated due to diseases like hyperthyroidism, diabetes mellitus, pernicious anemia and Addison's disease. Fungal infections of the human body are very common, and are often quite bothersome. One such example is a condition known as tinea versicolor, a superficial yeast infection that produces white spots on the skin that are difficult to remove. You should talk to your doctor and rule out the above causes. Let us know if you need any other information.
Avatar n tn Hi! recently diagnosed with type 1 Diabetes after lupus,hashimotos,vitiligo. Sometimes I get foggyhead/confusion. I go home and checked my bp and it was 82/48. This has happened twice in 1 week. Also I had the flu with fever of 101 and sugars were elevated, also bronchitis. I'm still getting the foggyhead and low BP. WHY???????. Can you help??
7732297 tn?1397450437 Okay so my boyfriend has type 1 diabetes and our daughter has recently started getting white patches on her face and so of course i googled what it could be and it says that it could be vitiligo and she may have gotten it because her father has diabetes. But im just so confused.. is any of that true? Or has anyone ever dealt with something like this? I know she has a chance of having diabetes but i didnt know anything about vitiligo.
Avatar f tn Type 3 MAS groups together autoimmune thyroid disease, myasthenia gravis and/or thymoma, Sjogren’s syndrome, pernicious anemia, idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP), Addison’s disease, insulin dependent diabetes, vitiligo, autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA), systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), and dermatitis herpetiformis. For this group, the immune system marker HLA-B8 and/or DR3 or DR5 seems to be an important factor.
Avatar n tn Keep in mind, too, that you may be more likely to develop Hashimoto's if you have one of these other conditions.
Avatar f tn One study showed 96% of Lupus patients had vitamin D deficiency. The PTPN22 gene increases the risk of type 1 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, autoimmune thyroid disease, systemic lupus erythematosus, vitiligo. Alopecia areata often occurs in people whose family members have other autoimmune diseases, such as type 1 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, thyroid disease, systemic lupus erythematosus, pernicious anaemia, or Addison's disease.
