I am currently in hospital due to an exercbation related to my PCD and Bronchietasis. I have had more infections infections in the past 6 months and courses of IV's and steroids and other treatments.
I have had some episodes over the past few month and symptoms which are linked to Diabetes. Therefore on admission I have been having my blood sugars checked and these are high. I have a healthy diet and I am 29 years old. I am going to be having a blood test to check for diabetes and I may be going on a low level insulin for now. My question is, are there any people with PCD who suffer with Diabetes?
If I was to be diagnosed with Diabetes my team are unsure to which type it would be, Type 2 or CF related Diabetes. People with Cystic Fibrosis have Diabetes related to the condition. However the nurse explained that increased mucus could cause insulin resistance which is obviously similar with PCD, so this why I ask the question. Also with PCD being under diagnosed I wonder if there are people out there who have Diabetes but have not had a PCD diagnosis so the link isn't made, I guess we will never with these people. Depending on the type may affect how I manage the Diabetes if I was to be diagnosed.
Any input would be much appreciated.
