Hi kigrsoavjo. Here is another answer to your question from Melvin Berger, M.D., Ph.D., Adjunct Professor of Pediatrics and Pathology, Case Western Reserve University:
It is extremely unlikely that the allergies in any way caused the diabetes. However, both conditions are altered forms of immunologic reactions, and it is not impossible that autoimmune disease (like diabetes) and allergies are both linked to disordered regulation of immune responses. I would certainly be wary of othyer immunologic endocrine disorders sunch as hypothyroidism or hypo-parasthyroidism, and would track her growth and development carefully.
As a separate question out of my own curiosity- have you had problems with thrush or fungal infections ?
