    Interesting @Antje77 know I really had to push - and my GP didn’t know how to order the tests, or how to interpret the results, but I just had this funny feeling - and I was right, it did come back as T1. My poor GP didn’t know quite what to say, bless him

    Same here. In the Netherlands you need a referral to get your C-peptide or antibodies tested, a GP can't order them, so they'll always be reviewed by an endo.
