Do you think that someone who has been diagnosed with Diabetes .. could have Lyme instead? I was asked by a coworker today this question and I really didn't have an answer.

Just curious. How many of you have Diabetes on top of Lyme?

Well I went to Canlyme - they always have the answer or so it seems. Ironically, at their Candian board someone asked the same exact question - here were the 2 pages of responses: http://www.canlyme.com/forum/viewtopic. ... 8aeb8580ea

Also another link there "Other Diseases and Lyme Relationship" : http://www.canlyme.com/phys.html#other

(You might notice they have the old style forum....they need to upgrade! :jumpy: )

Ha...look what else I just found at Wrong diagnosis:

"Lyme disease is difficult to diagnose, especially if the characteristic skin rash around the tick bite is absent. Lyme disease is one of a group of conditions with vague symptoms such as fatigue, aches, or malaise. In mild cases, people may not even seek medical advice unless symptoms become more severe. Lyme disease may need to be distinguished from fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, Type 2 diabetes, depression, Lyme disease, multiple sclerosis, or various other conditions." Here is the link...scroll way down: http://wrongdiagnosis.com/l/lyme_disease/intro.htm

Don't children generally have Type 1 though?

Oh, it's a child....still interesting type 1 is considered autoimmune, because the pancreas inability to produce insulin. My opinion, anything is possible, Lyme I am sure an create pancreatic problems. A test couldn't hurt. Igenex test or even a CD57 might confirm LD (although a CD57 blood test is only accurate if low, if high, it doesn't rule out LD) here is more on kids diabetes:

Type 1 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes in children: 90-95 per cent of under 16s with diabetes have this type.

It is caused by the inability of the pancreas to produce insulin.

Type 1 diabetes is classified as an autoimmune disease, meaning a condition in which the body's immune system 'attacks' one of the body's own tissues or organs.

In Type 1 diabetes it's the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas that are destroyed.

How common is it?

Childhood diabetes isn't common, but there are marked variations around the world:


in England and Wales 17 children per 100,000 develop diabetes each year


in Scotland the figure is 25 per 100,000


in Finland it's 43 per 100,000


in Japan it's 3 per 100,000.


The last 30 years has seen a threefold increase in the number of cases of childhood diabetes.

In Europe and America, Type 2 diabetes has been seen for the first time in young people. This is probably in part caused by the increasing trend towards obesity in our society.
