Hi there, I found out on 3 July, this year that I have diabetes. I have a family history of both Type 1 (Dad) and Type 2 (Mum). I went for a routine healthcare check-up and my blood sugar measured at 19. The Doctor said he was unsure if I was Type 1 or 2 as my age (23) indicated I was a Type 2 but my blood sugar levels indicated towards Type 1. I was given insulin - a morning and night slow release pen and a quick-acting pen for taking before meals. The insulin has significantly reduced my blood sugar levels but I did have some resistance at first, or what I thought was resistance maybe? I eat a lot of carbs (I know I shouldn't but long story short, I am out of work and cannot afford to buy my own food for now and live with parents) so I took higher units of insulin whenever I ate more carbs and my blood sugar dropped to between 8-9. I had all the routine tests for Type 1 done and they came out as negative. I met a diabetes specialist and he prescribed me Glucophage which has also helped to lower my blood sugar a lot quicker than insulin alone does after a meal. The Doc. said if Metformin worked well for me, he would assume I was a Type 2 ans weane me off insulin slowly. My question is, I'm scared that he'll make the wrong diagnosis. My Dad is Type 1 and he takes slow release insulin alongside Metformin. And though my test results have come out negative for Type 1 Diabetes, what if that is the type I truly have? If a combination of both insulin and Metformin is helping me to keep my blood sugars in the normal range, shouldn't I take both together? I'm sorry if I sould completely mental. Of course I'd rather not take insulin and have Type 2 as it would be easier to manage but I want to feel comfortable and secure in that I have been correctly diagnosed. Any help and advice you can give would be great. Thank you.
