Diabetes and autism

Does anyone have a child with type 1 diabetes and is autistic?

Hi, my 28-year old nephew is autistic and he was diagnosed with T1D last year (2/14/12) -- literally one day after MY daughter was diagnosed. Diabetes of ANY form had never been in our family and within 2 days, we had 2 diagnosed. Talk about ironic.

How old is your child? I would be happy to put you in touch with my sister. Fortunately for her, my nephew only needs one shot of Lantus a day and that's it - he maintains good control with just that one injection, which is amazing to me.

Hi. What level of autism does your child have? Aspergers?

My daughter has T1, ADHD with inattentiveness and OCD? She is on a cocktail of medications. Fortunately, they do not affect her blood sugar levels.
