: : My husband was diagnosed with adult onset diabetes about 2 months after he got out of the military service. I was wondering if there is anyone else that has developed diabetes and if they feel it is related to GWS? He also has about 30 fatty tumors that were biopsied and were benign but is there anyone else with these symptoms. Please respond.
: My husband was also diagnosed with Type II diabetes about 8 years after the Gulf War. He has no family history of it. He also had thyroid disease soon after the war was over. He will be on medication for his thyroid for the rest of his life. Anyone else out there that developed diabetes or thyroid disease after the Gulf War?
: My husband also was diagnosed with type II diabetes but, is was 7 yrs after the war. He was perfectly healthy with no family history of it. He also get this "lumps" under his skin. I believe the doctors said it was like a calcium deposit or something. They just take them out and all have been benign. But, he keeps getting more. Coincidence?
