    After an ultrasound, MRI and biopsy I've been told that a lump I have is an Amyloid deposition related to my diabetes. I've googled it and it only refers to this with T2 and I'm T1. Has anyone else had this and how is it treated?

    Hi pbilli I have heard of this before I don't know the ins and outs of the condition but I know you can get insulin resistance and are prone to more hyperglycaemia attacks and I'm not positive but I believe there trying to get a cure for it at the moment but as you say I thought it was only in type 2 not type 1 please let us know how you get on with this condition id like to know more thanks?
