Yes, but one of the reasons this might also have come about is possibly genetic.
No one in the family suffers from any sort of diabetes, but his mother has suffered from severe arthritis for many years now, so this may have some bearing on the way he has reacted to covid.
The prognosis in this case is that catching covid has triggered this type of immune response, which in turn has led to type 1 diabetes.
One thing for sure - the medics will be on for years figuring out all the possible viral after effects of covid.
A friend who has suffered badly for over a year now after having covid has been for another scan a couple days ago, this time for the liver.
She has been for several different body scans/tests for various possibilities over the last few months.
Working their way down the list of what might be causing her severe physical debility.
They are having a real hard time tracking down anything specifically wrong
