In type 1 diabetes, the pancreas undergoes an autoimmune attack by the body itself, and is rendered incapable of making insulin. Abnormal antibodies have been found in the majority of patients with type 1 diabetes. Antibodies are proteins in the blood that are part of the body's immune system.

METHODS: We followed standard guidelines for performance of meta-analyses.

Avatar n tn Metabolic diseases like diabetes (which you said has been ruled out), thyroid disorders or diabetes insipidus (not the same as diabetes mellitus) can be considered. The latter disease can be evaluated with a water restriction test. As for the cholesterol, I agree with the lifestyle changes. If this is not enough to bring the cholesterol down, medications like the various statin class of drugs can be considered. These options can be discussed with your personal physician.
