    Hi Guys,

    I have GDM (currently 18weeks pregnant) and have been taking insulin since week 8 as my BG levels were high immediately after I got pregnant.
    This is my second GDM pregnancy, after the first one I took an OGTT test and the results came back normal, no insulin resistance whatsoever, my insulin levels were normal low.
    This time I got a c-peptide test and it is 0.94 ng/mL.
    No antibodies tests yet.
    Do you thing that there is a chance that I may be developing LADA or T1D? Or is this normal in GDM?
    I’m 32 and skinny.

    I'm not sure c-peptide is used for GDM ... for example here
    Might be better to repeat the c-peptide test after the pregnancy ...
