RIP Casey Johnson - she was diagnosed type 1 at 8yrs old. I always thought if there was a treatment or cure for type 1 then the J&J family would find one. Sadly they didn't...
Hi Henry, Just Googling Brittany Murphy because I'm also curious about the diabetes connection. Did she have undiagnosed type 1? As you probably know now, type 1 causes weightloss, and if untreated, can cause death literally by starvation if insulin isn't given. My partner was diagnosed with type 1 aged 42 (old for type 1) - it changed his life and everyday he hates it, but it won't necessarily be the end if you if you manage it properly. One bit of advice: there is no perfect type 1 regardless of what the medical people say. Sometimes you try your very hardest and test every two hours and the blood glucose levels are still up and down like the stock market. Good luck in your journey, Henry, I don't know you but will now favourite your blog and look forward to your story. Karen, New Zealand.
