    My name is Becky, I'm 27 and I was diagnosed with LADA earlier this year which came as a huge shock with no family history etc.
    I have been treating it with metformin but since trying and succeeding in conceiving I have just been swapped to insulin at 5 weeks pregnant.
    Although I knew the switch was coming it was still a shock to the system and I'd love to hear if anyone else has experienced this, any tips or advice etc in regards to preganacy and newly diagnosed type 1.5.
    Thank you
