Hello. I am 20 years old and have recently been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes (or so I believe). After losing a tremendous amount of weight and getting my blood drawn, which led to results of elevated blood sugar levels of 589 mg, non-fasting, and around 280 mg fasting, I was sent to the emergency room and hospitalized for 2 days on 4/4/16. I had some ketones in my urine and my HbA1C level was 15.1%. They got my sugars under control and I am now taking 14 units of Lantus every morning and around 4 units of humalog with each meal (1 unit per 15 carbs but I don't take it for snacks). My test results for GAD antibodies as well as islet cells both came back negative, but after drinking apple juice to intentionally raise my sugars before a blood test, my C-peptide levels came back fairly low (1.0 on a scale of 0.8-3.9) so my pancreas is not producing very much insulin. I feel I am in a so called "honey moon phase" due to the random spurts of insulin my pancreas does seem to produce because I may sometimes have a meal, count my carbs, and be fairly low (50s) only an hour or 2 later. All of these signs point me to DT1 but my test results confuse me.
Any input? Thanks!
