So, as many of you will have read I still have no diagnosis of my type of diabetes. I am GAD antibody negative, MODY negative and have a low c peptide. I’m young, slim and lost a lot of weight on diagnosis. I also go extremely high when eating carbs with no insulin. Therefore, with this background, I am treated as T1 and on a basal/bolus regime along with taking metformin as an insulin sensitiser. It’s frustrating not having a diagnosis but today I got my new hba1c and it’s now 51! Given that on diagnosis on 1 November 2018 it was 103, I was very very happy! This means I have halved my hba1c in 8 months - all whilst doing my LPC (solicitors) exams. I’m definitely still in the diabetic range, but I would like to consider this is a good achievement and only strives time to get under the 48 next time! It doesn’t necessarily matter about the type of diabetes - it’s all about the treatment and so if that means insulin, well so be it .
