I was diagnosed with Type 1 at the age of 37 yearsold and have been dealing with the “condition” for approximately 2 and half years now. But I have just found out this week that my older brother has also just been diagnosed with Type 1 at the age of 41.
We are both healthy and active with no serious illnesses to date and no family history of the diabetes.
Has anyone ever heard of such a case like this? Surely it cant be coincidence, my Endo had no explanation for my diagnoses and just put it down to bad luck…now I am beginning to wonder?
