I am just curious if anyone knows anything about this. I suspect I have some sort of hormonal imbalance and am wondering if its caused by my diabetes.

Howdy Kelly Jo.

Apparently so. Looking at google I found this reprint of a Dec. 1961 British Medical Journal which says as much. Read it here ~ http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1... . You'll have to scroll down in the landing page to "DIABETES MELLITUS AND HORMONE IMBALANCE" in the first column of text and scroll back up to top of the page to resume the article. It is about 2 pages long.

It is logical that one will have a hormone imbalance when one has diabetes mellitus (DM) as insulin is itself a hormone.

For a more recent treatment on this subject see this from Livestrong here ~ http://www.livestrong.com/article/191514-horm...
