Hi, Thanks to anyone who reads this. I've been on treatment as a type 2 for 4 years now, i was 30 at the time and not the usual type 2 patient. I'm on metformin and also linaglipten, i was also on gliclazide for a while. At the meeting with the specialist this morning, he's decided to put me on insulin, said i'd only need to take it once a day. He's ran all sorts of tests on me, had my blood sent away for genetic and molecular tests, nothing has came back to explain why i have diabetes, there's no family history at all, AT ALL. Everytime i go he always asks me about family history of it. He said i was an odd type 2 patient, i wasnt type 1 but my body is not producing enough insulin. I am totally floored with it all and quite upset about going on insulin. i dont know why im so upset, guess i'm still a bit shocked, so excuse any spelling or grammar mistakes on this post. I just would like to know why i'm diabetic, i havent had any answers in nearly 5 years but i suppose theyve ran the tests and nothing has cam e back, guess i'm just a freak.
