From Colorado, USA:
I was wondering if there has been any link found between leukemia and Type 1 diabetes. I had leukemia when I was six and was then diagnosed with diabetes at age 11. I have been researching this possible link on the Internet but have not yet found any studies.
The two conditions have sometimes been reported together; but as far as I know there is no biological link.
