Hi everyone, I'm a newbee with lots of questions. I've been a type 1 diabetic since 1990, ( gestational before that). I've been suffering from a lot of joint/muscle pain, weakness cramps, feeling pretty bad, and a new doctor recently sent me for a heap of blood tests, the results of which are indicating reumatoid arthritis. So..... I ve been reading lots of info on the Internet. I found an old chat between some diabetics ( not this site) who where saying that they had gotten off Lantus ( my current long acting insulin), and after years of pain, found themselves pain free.
I'm just wondering if anyone has anything to add to this, as I don't want t o start taking more medications for something when maybe the Lantus is causing this pain??
Has anyone got any clues?
