My guess is that I'm a LADA diabetic, although I don't have my antibody test results yet. So hello all ! I'm new on here. I'm 60 years old, 55 kg, active. I eat mostly vegetarian, mostly organic. Last weekend, I was diagnosed Diabetic Ketoacidosis (Hgb A1C 106, 4 + ketones in my urine). Off to the A&E on Monday. It took the doctors and nurses about 18 hours before they got my DKA enough under control that I could be weaned off the insulin, dextrose, saline, and potassium. My brain still feels a bit like scrambled eggs, and my blood sugars are up and down. My guess is that I have been partially producing insulin for a while, over the summer at least, but I didn't recognise it as a Type 2 diabetes. I am the picture of health, diabetes was the last thing on my mind. And, the pandemic spooked me out of going to the surgery as I developed symptoms which could be written off as something else (eg, age, stress, etc). I have about 35 years of Critical Care nursing behind me, but it's a lot different living with diabetes, than caring for a diabetic patient. I'm just starting to look around on Diabetes.co.uk to try to learn how to count carbohydrates., to help get my blood sugar under control, and I appreciate any links or suggestions you have to help me. Thank you!
