Back in December 2017 I switched endocrinologists.
My old one labeled me T2 and kept giving me orals which helped some but not very much. After trying victoza and that not doing much, my old endo stopped all orals and put me on Novolog and kept the Victoza. My A1C went down some, bust still in the low 7 A1C range.
My new doc did antibody tests 12/19/2017 and found:
IA2 < 1
Unsure what time of day the cpep was run and if it was fasting or not.
He said Anything 0.8 or lower was clinically Type 1 and if I was on medicare, I’d meet the criteria for T1 but since I was already on insulin, further testing was a waste of time since it would be the same treatment. He also said that if it would help for insurance, he would re-label me T1.
I’m currently on a Dex G6 and omnipod but highly insulin resistant running anywhere from a low of 60 units per day of insulin to a max of 120 units depending on what I eat.
But now I want to branch out and talk about Diabetes on the boards and on facebook.
Just not sure how to label myself. Am I an insulin dependent T2 or a misdiagnosed T2 turned T1 (1.5)?
A1Cs have been pretty steady with the latest being 6.0 on 2/5/2019 but I’m not doing all that great on preventing highs and lows.
