: Hi - Not sure I can give you any advice or help, but I'm in a similar boat. I don't have Diabetes so I have no idea how that affects your treatment. I'm 31 and have had RA for a few years starting after the birth of my first son. I just recently started on Methotrexate. So far nothing major happening - good or bad. Are a lot of the usual drugs off limits when you have diabetes? I have been trying to change my diet to reduce sugar intake (which I'm sure you have to be careful with as it is). I've also been looking into Chinese medicine and natural therapies, but it's hard to know where to start and figure out how much you want to spend. If you want to chat about things, let me know. I find it difficult to talk to most people about it as they don't have any idea what you're going through.
Take Care - Shelly
