Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 year ago):
my son (12 years old) has been taking Abilify for about a year. I started noticing him drinking and urinating more. We decided to check his Blood Sugar one night and it was 561! We took him to the ER. He will be insulin dependent the rest of his life. 2 weeks after he was diagnosed, I decided to stop the Abilify. Within 3 days his blood sugar checks were at least 50% less. We had not changed the insulin dose except to make it less, since he was improving. I believe that Abilify caused my son's diabetes. I never knew how life altering this disease is. PLEASE be careful.
Julie on Oct, 31, 2012:
