I have Type 1 and UC too!
I also live in the Midwest and I love my GI. My doctor is always hesitant to put me on
steroids, because of how it raises my blood sugar. A couple of years ago she was really pushing
for me to take Humira, so I could stay away from steroids. I never went on it and I don’t need either now. I just take Apriso daily.
Are you looking for a doctor who specializes in both? That
might be hard to find, but it would be awesome if you could. I am grateful that my GI is always very conscious
of how drugs might affect my diabetes. I
see a rheumatologist for joint issues related to UC and he is very good to
consider both, as well.
What state are you in?
