    Hi guys, quick question, Does anyone have any conditions or complications from having diabetes? I’ve been having chest “twinges” on the left side for about a week, and was wondering if this is a common thing, or if it’s serious or what?? I’ve only been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes a year and half ago... TIA

    In your shoes I would be getting myself checked out with my GP - it could simply be something muscular or a lot more serious - we are not able to give medical advice here - pick up the phone and make the call - take care

    Just because you've got diabetes it doesn't mean that all the health issues not associated with diabetes go away. I've no idea whether those symptoms are a T1 complication, but even if you weren't diabetic you should get it checked out.

    Good luck.
