Hi guys, I’m 36 and I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes a couple of months ago and after seeing a consultant I’ve been on a gram of slow release metformin and one sitagliptin a day for just over a month in combination with a strict diet and exercise regime. Initially the thirst went away but just in the last week it’s come back along with the midnight trips to the toilet and the consultant now thinks I may have type 1? I have gone for the hba1c test again (my original result was 88) but I’m worried if there hasn’t been any change he’ll jump to conclusions prematurely. Is it possible that the medication simply isn’t strong enough and has worn off and needs to be increased? What tests completely verify the type 1 version? Does the thirst 100% imply high blood sugar or can it be a side effect of the medication?
