Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease and depending of clinical manifestation and stage of disease different kind of therapy is used. In severe cases, it can be treated with drug called corticosteroids. Long-term use of this category of drugs can cause diabetes, which have to be treated with drugs usually using for other kinds of diabetes.

Lupus is an autoimmune disease, which means that the body creates antibodies which attack its own tissues. Diabetes can be caused if the body is producing antibodies which attack the patient's insulin receptors. This is commonly the link when a patient has both diabetes and lupus.

Theoretically speaking, there's no certain connection between diabetes and lupus.

As for the severity of developing both diseases, it can be dangerous. I am not sure if you know that, active lupus can be fatal and need intensive care and treatments. If you are interested in the details, contact me with Emails. I will provide you some materials which may be helpful to you.

I also have both Diabetes and Lupus. The Diabetes came first for me. The most difficult thing for me is that most often with the combination of the two diseases, it is difficult to treat a flair with corticosteroids, which tend to raise blood sugars for days or weeks at a time.

my husband has type 2 diabetes. Was diagnosed in his 50s. Diagnosed with lupus in 2008 when he was 68. He is now 76. He has infusion of Benlysta every 4 weeks, which has made a huge difference in his lupus flares. He is doing great. If her insurance will not cover the infusions, contact the drug company, and they may cover it. She should be seeing a Rheumatologist.
