Does anyone know if there is an increased risk of having RA if you have T1 diabetes?
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.
Thanks for posting that. We are dealing with both JIA and Diabetes with two of my children......
