Well, it isn't, so I guess you do.
T2 is a diagnosis of exclusion. It is diabetes not diagnosable as any other discrete form (T1, LADA, MODY, gestational, etc.). Like every other type of diabetes—or most diseases, come to that—it assumes different profiles in different individuals. For reasons too detailed to take up space with here, I now have very few working beta cells left; my most recent c-pep came in at 0.1. T2 is more complex and varied than many believe.
But, as I have said many times before, the whole type classification discussion is moot for me. At the end of the day I don't care whether I am Type 1, Type 2, or Type 68. What I do care about is having normal blood sugars, and I will do whatever it takes to accomplish that. Whatever anyone thinks.
