I know that the purpose of this board is to discuss investments in the biotech arena. I don't think that people should come here for advice on medical problems, but......I've lurked here enough to know that there are some great minds, and people who KNOW what's happening in biotech research. So....here goes....My 7 yr old granddaughter was admitted to the hospital today with a 700+ blood sugar and 1+ urinary ketones. She has a history of Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (the latter seems to be in remission).I realize that Type 1 diabetes and the other two conditions are autoimmune disorders.My questions:1) Where on the Internet can I best find information about these conditions? (particularly the autoimmune phenomenon)2) Are there any clinical trials that I should know about?(I suppose I'm hoping to find some way....perhaps through early intervention....to short-circuit the autoimmune process)Any ideas would be most appreciated.I simply can't give in to the prospect that this kid will be doomed to a life of insulin injections and restricted diet. I love her too much!!Jack
