    19th June 2018 - HbA1c 51 :joyful:
    This means I have halved my diagnosis HbA1c in 8 months

    24th May 2019 - MODY result negative :grumpy:

    Doctors still unable to diagnose a type due to having markers for both T1 and T2.
    For now, being treated as T1 on basal/bolus regime.
    Ordered to take another c-peptide test to see current pancreatic function.

    26th March 2019 - HbA1c 59 :smug:

    Still too high, but feeling much better.

    15th February 2018 - Still 'Diabetic' :bored:

    Following appointment with consultant, C Peptide confirmed as low and GAD antibodies negative.
    Put on quick acting insulin (Humalog) 1unit for 10g carbs.
    Being tested for MODY.
    If MODY is negative, consultant has said I may never fit into either type 1 or 2.

    Diagnosed 'Diabetic' - 1st November 2018 - HbA1c 103 - BMI 21.6 :hungover:

    Awaiting C-Peptide and Islet blood tests to ascertain whether T1/T2/T1.5.
