    Does anyone know if there is an increased risk of having RA if you have T1 diabetes?

    Thanks, Jamie

    While the article claims that the finding doesn't indicate an increased risk, I think that the authors are misinterpretting the data; people with one allele for diabetes there and one for MS or arthritis would be at a higher risk for both because they wouldn't have any protective, functioning alleles.

    Thanks so much for the website! I think you are right about the authors not seeing the whole picture.
