Hi, I have rheumatoid arthritis and diabetes. The RA is under control with Enbrel and I have been place on insulin for the diabetes. I have so far tried 4 types of insulin but each one caused a flare-up of the RA.
It took over a year to get the RA under control and manageable (over 3 years ago and has been reasonably stable, the odd flare up but that's to be expected), so don't want to change what's working for me in that front.
I (me and the diabetic team) cannot seem to be able to find anything at the moment which will help the diabetes. some of the insulin has made it better but still caused a flare up, and also made it worse plus flare up.
I have been told that they have not seen this happen before
Is there any information out there which might help me or do I have to keep on going through the list of different types of insulin?
thanks for reading this
