    Update: so I had antibodies done back before july this year and they've come back negative once again,Was dignosed back in july of 2015 with type 1 due to DKA after spending 2 days in hospital on a drip.Consultant wanted me to do some more antibodies to see if he can diagnose me type 1,Currently taking background insulin which is keeping me steady atm. I'm stressed about the situation tbh

    As far as I understand, you can still be Type 1 LADA without antibodies @wiserkurtious

    Weren't you trying to get fast acting insulin? Hope I'm remembering right.

    I've read before that a proportion of those with Type 1/LADA are antibody negative (somewhere like 20-25%). Has your consultant also ordered a c-peptide test @wiserkurtious to see how much endogenous insulin you are producing?

    How are you BG levels in general ? Try not to stress, that won't help you, get some exercise if you can it will help alleviate the stress.

    Hi @wiserkurtious That's really good - at least your levels are looking ok, be good to see what your next HbA1C is, however one thing less to worry about at the moment :)

    You're more accepting than me. I'd be pushing for bolus insulin.

    (Yes, I know I've said that before to you : D )

    @wiserkurtious How does that compare with your previous ones? Are you still restricting your carbs?
