Q.

Does Oratane cause diabetes ?

My son was on 20mg Oratane in September 2018. In May 2019 he was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Did the Oratane cause this diabetes ?

Hi

No, the Oratane didn't cause the diabetes. Oratane can worsen insulin resistance, and therefore may have brought the Type 1 diabetes(which was in the background) on earlier, as it put more strain on the pancreas
