    I think that, under the banner of 'Type 2' are many subdivision, as yet unresearched and discovered. I suspect there is more going on with me than Type 2 itself, or I have different type of type 2.

    if that makes sense.

    @alison. It means that he thinks I was misdiagnosed as type 2 (I had no antibodies, but apparently some t1 don’t have them, depending on when they were tested etc) judging from my history and how it’s played out over the years - a number of drs have previously asked me “are you sure you’re not type 1” looking at my case - and now I’ve started to develop significant insulin resistance (clear from looking at the amount of insulin I need).

    So “double diabetes” after all.

    Gastric surgery is still on the table for me, as my weight loss is glacially slow, but hoping I will avoid it. Weight management services are pleased with me for now so we'll see.
