Has anyone ever been on the injectable drug by the name of Lupron? I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes AFTER being on this drug for 6 months. I recently found out that the FDA released in October 2010 that a side-effect of Lupron is diabetes. This drug is commonly used for endometriosis and prostate cancer. Any comments, personal experiences, or helpful information would be appreciated!

Hi, my 8 year old daughter had 3 lupron shots before they put her on Supprellin for Central Precocious Puberty. One year later, she was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. I would love to know if there is a connection.

I was put on this awful drug for 6 months in 1999 in order to shrink a uterine fibroid tumor prior to a myomectomy. it didnt cause my T1 however. Ive had D since childhood. Sorry I cant be of more help to you!

Oh wow! I was on that shot in 1999 too a month after I had surgery for durmoid tumors. I had my right ovary and tube removed and they found endometrosis so I was put on that shot for 3 months. At the time I never knew it could do that. I will look into it, I was diagnosed in 2003. Sorry I couldn't be more help.
