I wonder, does a misdiagnosis in adults of T2 when in fact it's T1 or T1 LADA happen fairly frequently? I was diagnosed on 27 October as T2 but as my BMI is normal (well, normal-ish; in fact I'm too thin and have been losing weight despite an enormous appetite) I kept being called "atypical". But my diabetic nurse seemed to have no curiosity/desire to interrogate things beyond telling me to cut out fizzy drinks and fruit juice, prescribing Gliclazide and booking me into DESMOND. I'm 46. At diagnosis my blood sugar was over 20; my HbA1c was 12.2. A couple of weeks later a truly wonderful clinic nurse, who just happened to overhear at my GP surgery that an appointment with my diabetic nurse had been cancelled without my knowledge due to an administrative error, called me into her room. She was very concerned about me and my diagnosis. She arranged an appointment with a diabetes consultant. Now I've been to the hospital unit and had all the blood tests (results will take several weeks) but their best guess is T1 LADA. They were utterly brilliant in the diabetes unit. I'm off Gliclazide and on insulin. I suppose in the scheme of things four weeks isn't very long but I think if the nurse hadn't happened to pass as I was having a bit of an argument with a GP receptionist, I'd still be under the assumption I was definitely Type 2, and on medication for that. Anyway, life is a bit confusing these days but this forum has been extremely helpful, and so far I have managed to control my blood sugar through medication and changes to diet, and I'm beginning to build my knowledge of both types (or three types if you include LADA) in anticipation of eventually knowing for certain which I am.
