Geez, it's GREAT to see you, it's been so long. Yes, of course I knew you had type 1 diabetes, but forgot. Do you know of anyone besides you and me? Have you EVER had a recurrence since you were diagnosed. SInce you are one of the true, actual scientists on the board do you have any thoughts about this? The possibility of some benefit of a hyperactive autoimmune system with regard to cancer control.
It is obviously atypical that I never have had a recurrence since diagnosis, although of course the oligometastatic disease surely helped with that, once the liver tumor was out. I would love to hear your thoughts, if any, about this.
We sure seem to have a lot of Hashimoto's around here. Looks like the reported incidence of it is 0.3-1.5/1000, and I have no idea how to translate that information to what our folks have, but seems like there's a lot of it. Butt, where are all the folks with type 1 diabetes? Perhaps there are the right number of them with cancer, and just aren't on this board.
How is your liver doing, if you feel like saying? I hope you're very well.
