    Wow, that's crazy, I wonder if he changes his story depending on his audience?

    I thought I had heard at least on interview where it was stated that he did not use illegal drugs. But, that people just assumed he did drugs.

    It was on his Dlife interview. He said he first came out that he had Type 1 after he went hypo during a concert (gave insulin, and forgot to eat). After it happened he said everyone started saying he was a heroine addict, so he announced that, no, he was Diabetic.

    Wow, I have never heard of anyone being dx'd with type 1 in their 50's. I thought around 40 was the cut off. Guess not:confused::confused:

    We were told at dx that you can be diagnosed ANY time, even in your 90's!

    This in 2008 that I heard this, but when I went to the BDC for my test study they told me they just had someone in their 70's diagnosed.

    I read now a new "rumor" that the B.H. was maybe caused by his fall from stage in 2009.

    My husband works with a woman that was diagnosed T1 at 55. Her brother was diagnosed T1 at 8 years old.

    I asked my mother about if diabetes could cause a brain hemorrhage, since she is an MD. She said brain hemorrhages are mostly from one of two things: congenital defects, and atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis is accelerated by diabetes, but is something that builds up over most people's lifetimes.

    Whoa, I had no idea, and here I was thinking I was out of the woods because I'm 43. :( I am REALLY starting my grandma had type 1, not type 2. She was VERY sick at dx'd and was 40.

    If I recall he hit his head and fell on stage? I didn't see it but I think I heard it on the radio the next day, but that was awhile ago wasn't it (at least a few months I think??)? Is this something that can build up over time over and get progressively worse?

    I feel so bad for him and his family and hope he can recover fully.

    Maybe, and this is just pure speculation on my part, when he hit his head he got some kind of injury, which did not bother him until he had surgery 2 weeks ago and got blood thinner medication. :confused:
