I got a diagnosis about three weeks ago, which was "diabetes, treated as type 1". The rationale for that was high ketone levels, plus they said I was a bit too young to have type 2. I thought type 2 would have been more likely given that I'm obese (90kg on 6'10") around my belly. Anyway, I just got a copy of a letter to my GP saying that the blood results showed very elevated "cholesterol levels" (nothing about type) and triglycerides and it was probably because I was poorly controlling my diabetes (although I didn't know at the time). Does this then open the possibility that it is actually type 2, and that if I continue with the low carb diet (and obviously low fat if cholesterol levels are too high), then I could potentially come off the insulin and reverse it?
