        Hiya Lamont. Sorry, only just seen this. It would seem it was a doctor making an assumption and not following it up and carrying out further tests to confirm diabetes and as such a decade of unnecessary treatment.

        What’s been happening for you? Have you managed to get any answers? I really hope you’re ok.
        Here if you’d like to discuss further Xx

    Birthday:
    May 4, 1979 (Age: 43)
    Type of diabetes:
    Type 1
    Treatment type:
    Insulin
    I was diagnosed Type 1 Diabetic 34/12/13, Started off on insulin injections, three short acting and one long-acting insulin before bed, 4insulin injections per day.
    Recurring DKA - approx six times per year but always have high ketones but low blood sugar last time 8 ketones and 1.1 blood sugar.
    3-5 hypos per week.
    Lost job of 11 years in council due to recurring hypos (capability)
    Haven't driven for eight years due to hypos
    Lost relationship
    Became anxious - only left house three times in last six months due to fear of seizures or hypos (had a fit in a supermarket and on a bus and woke up a day later in hospital due to insulin overdose)
    Begged NHS to investigate. Was i really diabetic? Alwasy dismissed and laughed at.
    Finally got a nurse to take me seriously.
    06/06/2022 - informed that my original test results do not indicate i am diabetic. Told to stop insulin immediately and assured they investigate.
    Now what? Such a bizzarre ten years. ;-)
