I have both of these diseases, plus a few more.

For those of you that don't know what Sarcoid (Sarcoidosis) is it is a chronic, Systemic, Granulomatus auto-immunine disease. That can attack any organ in your body.

The only way, this is controlled is with a drug called predisone, which is a anti-inflamatory cortosteriod.

There is no cure for this but, you can be in remission (I am now).

I was told it is possible that this illness could of brought on my diabetes. Also, that many people have this diease and really don't know they have it.

Some of the symptoms are: fever, night sweats, inflamation of the eyes, skin rashes, weight loss, shortness of breath, fatique, and a cough that doesn't go away.

I was wondering if there are any other diabetics out there that have this disease.
