I'm a 38 yo man who has been being treated as a type 2 diabetic since my mid 20 ' s. Diet did nothing so started on the usual type 2 pills. Basically the pills didn't do a lot and my hba1c has always been high. Over the last 6 months, triggered by a change in doctor and a fasting blood glucose in the 30's I was put on insulin. I've been steadily increasing my dose and am now taking 60 odd units of a slow acting one (lantus). Now I weigh about 88 kg and I'm about 5 foot 8. So I'm carrying a bit of timber but not massively over weight but I'm a pretty active bloke too. So far the insulin hasn't been doing a lot. I still get 12 - 15 in the morning before breakfast although I've had a few in single figures once or twice. Since starting my hba1c has dropped a little from 95 to 77 but it's nowhere near expected. I have just had the results of a c peptide test which came back at 1089 . So apparently I still make healthy doses of my own insulin. Currently I'm waiting on an appointment with a consultant at the hospital. Obviously I'm a little worried and I'm just wondering if anyone else here has had a similar experience or any knowledge of what's going on with my body. Sorry for a long first post and feel free to move this if it's not in the right section. Many thanks in advance.
