where people touched by diabetes help each other.

Any T1's ever have hives? After 7 months of scratching, 7 months of adding claritin to my diet and after seeing 10 different drs: allergist, immunologist, blah blah blah...it's been decided that I have autoimmune hives...my body is just falsly attacking my antihistamines. I guess it makes sense because T1 is also autoimmune? Wondering if anyone out there has more than one autoimmune OR has a remedy for hives! Willing to try anything at this point!

My daughter was diagnosed last march and for the first few months she would randomly get hives. It just spontaneously resolved after a few months.

Thanks for sharing! Fingers crossed it spontaneously disappears one of these days ; )

after many month of thinking i had hives i went to a dermologist i found out i had a severe case of eczema skin. iwas so glad to have a diagnosis. ihad no idea it can get that bad. it came from me being a diabetic.

Many folks get more than one autoimmune disorder. T1s usually get checked regularly for Thyroid. My second autoimmune was Celiacs...although I may have had it first. It was undiagnosed for so long.

Definitely get checked for hashimotos antibodies. Hives can occur with thyroid disease. My child has both Hashi's and T1D
