@AlexTreville the following 2 excerpts are from the celiac association. The link between type 1 diabetes mellitus and celiac disease was first established in the 1960s. The estimated prevalence of celiac disease in patients with type 1 diabetes is approximately 8%, and about 1% in the general population. Most patients with both conditions have asymptomatic celiac disease, or symptoms that may be confused for symptoms of their diabetes. There is no established link between type 2 diabetes and celiac disease. Type 2 diabetes does have genetic components, but they are not associated with celiac disease genes like type 2 diabetes’ are. the original OP has clearly stated she is type 2 and to be honest this forum is about support , but support that is delivered in an empathetic way to encourage either further discussion or clearly engagement on the subject being discussed. Many people that post are scared , worried and very unsure when they post so kindness does make a difference to people.
