Hi all, I don’t really post much on here but I’m just having one of those weeks where I feel like my diabetes is beating me and it’s been tough. I was diagnosed type 1 over three years ago. But after a couple of months of using novorapid & lantus I began having regular hypo’s. I had been exercising rather intensely, but my hba1c came back really low. The diabetic specialist said I was in the honeymoon phase and for over one year I wasn’t taking any medication at all. It was like my diabetes had gone. But, low and behold it did eventually return and one year ago I was put on metformin because the insulin was still giving me hypo’s, even in really small doses. The metformin gave me bad stomach aches and it turned out my hba1c had gone down again, better than a normal persons in fact! So I came off of medication again! I’d had the relevant tests to diagnose both types 1 & 2; c peptide, GAD, islet cells, Etc. There were no results to suggest type 1. But my height, age and weight didn’t suggest type 2. The doctors were stumped (they still are). Anyway; the diabetes has come back with a vengeance this year. My bloods have been rising, particularly from lunch time onwards. I’m now taking metformin, gliclazide AND Levimir injections and just feel poop most of the time, yet I still haven’t had that definitive diagnosis of “you’re a type 1”, or “it’s type 2”. I’ve had tests for LADA come back negative, you name it, I’ve had it done! It’s just so demoralising, even now... three years on. Anyway, sorry for the essay but I just felt that I had to share my experience, even if just to vent some of my anguish.
