'Interview with the Vampire' author Anne
Rice dies at age 80 (due to sequelae re-
sulting from a stroke, this article fails to
mention Anne had been battling Islit the
last ~22 years of her life)

Per the following article, Anne Rice got
Insulinitis (Islit, near-total to total loss
of endogenous insulin) at age ~58 (do

The writer also confuses by discussing
the condition that Anne Rice didn't have,

Author Anne Rice, known for her best-selling
"Vampire Chronicles" series, has been dealing
with an all-too-real horror story of her own, a
health crisis that at first terrified her, and then
nearly took her life.

After enduring a series of strange symptoms
that her doctors were not able to explain, Rice
reached a pivotal point five years ago (which,
per the date of this article, was 1999, when
Anne was ~58 years of age), when she woke
up early one morning with a pounding head- ...

... ache. She was also having difficulty breath-
ing. Author Anne Rice, known for her best-sell-
ing "Vampire Chronicles" series, has been deal-
ing with an all-too-real horror story of her own,
a health crisis that at first terrified her, and then
nearly took her life.

As her condition worsened, Rice's husband and
her assistant called 911. When an ambulance
crew arrived at the house, Rice was unconscious.

Rice later learned that she had been in a coma,
and just minutes from death. She also learned
the cause: ... Rice has type 1 diabetes (Islit) ...

As stated in my sig below, Islit is alarmingly
misdiagnosed as Cellosis in 55% of those who
get Islit over age 50. Unclear why Anne's Islit
wasn't diagnosed until she was near death, or
why a simply pinpricked glucose test wasn't
done until it was almost too late to save her

Unmentioned in the article about her death,
her stroke may have been caused by her bat-
tling Islit for the last ~22 years of her life.

New SUPERIOR clarifying name for near-
total to total loss of endogenous insulin

The overwhelming majority of Islit caused by
autoimmune attacks on pancreatic beta cells
(Insulitis Islit) but there are

o 15 specific types of rapid onset Islit, a
rare condition (only present in < one-half
of 1% of Americans & in a much lower rate
in most of the world), when present is typ-
ically diagnosed at age under 30
(50% at age < 18, 20% at age 19 to 29)

o 1 slow onset specific type, Latent Autoim-
mune Islit, frequency unknown but per a
recent report, misdiagnosed as Cellosis
(new clarifying name for type 2 diabetes)
almost 40% of the time due to its slow
onset and its occurrence typically at age
over 30

Old outdated anachronistic name for Islit is
type 1 diabetes, confusing in that diabetes
without clarifier is often used to describe
this condition which is 1 of the 7 Disparate
High Glucose Conditions (DHGCs).

That makes figuring out which DHGC is actu-
ally being referred to (and it can be any one,
or some, or all of them when the diabetes
or diabetic word is used without clarifier)
confusing / difficult:

- - -

It's estimated that 5% to 11% of Islit individuals
will die from severe hypoglycemia, the highest
risk of that being while sleeping (i.e., dead-in-
bed syndrome).
