    My son's dermatologist wants to put him on Accutane and I'm scared to death of the side effects. I have a call in to the endo but wanted to ask others about its effects on diabetes, especially since having diabetes in indicated on the label to discuss with your dr before using. My son is sick of painful acne and wants the meds. I don't want to risk the side effects with him having both T1D and Addison's Disease. We've never exactly had this conflict before. The dermatologist keeps insisting he will be fine but he didn't exactly know much about Addison's or the purpose for his meds he's on for that. Any stories to share?
