PTSD can cause diabetes?

25 09 2007

Just saw this article from Consumerist that says* the man’s posttraumatic stress disorder caused his diabetes.  Can this happen?  I would think that a person would already be pre-diabetic and possibly the PTSD aggravated the condition.  Personally, I think his/his lawyer’s claims are bogus.  What do you think?

* Technically, Consumerist is merely relaying the information from another source.  I’m not trying to imply that Consumerist is saying these things directly.

First, What is your knowledge of what your talking about? Are you a professional in any of these areas? Are you A Combat Veteran? If you answered yes to ny of these you should already know the answers to your questions. If not then research more about Combat PTSD/PTSD and Diabetes you will find a slew of information about it. As to your commnet that the Lawyer and clients claims being bogus, I would say wait and see first.

I am not a professional, nor have claimed to be. I am not a Combat Veteran either. However, I DO have Type 1 diabetes, so I’d like to think that I’m at least a little bit knowledgeable in that area. I agree with your comment, however, that we need to wait and see.
