I'm relatively new here. Just a few weeks ago my endo told me she thought I might have LADA (due to glucose intolerance and a relatively low c-peptide score of 0.6) and even gave me some insulin to keep just in case.
Let's just say that freaked me out some. I read How to Think Like a Pancreas and was getting ready for a life with insulin being a major part of it. I did hold out some hope though that her thinking was wrong and maybe I don't have LADA. Well today I finally got the antibody tests back and I'm negative for GAD-65, insulin autoantibodies and ICA512 etc. Thank god. I'm much happier with the idea that maybe I can manage everything without insulin.
But that doesn't really answer the question of what I actually have? I don't really have the signs of Type II as I am thin, have no signs of metabolic issues and have low c-peptide levels, not high. And this test shows I don't have Type I or LADA either. And it's not like everything is fine. My bg shouldn't be going to the high 160's after having some non-sugar added oat bran or a hot dog. Heck my bg goes to the upper end of normal if I just eat chicken and legumes.
It could always be MODY but neither of my parents have ever had sugar issues. So I'm perplexed. Any ideas? The endo basically told me to check my sugars every few days and come in for another set of labs in a few months. Nothing else to do than that I guess (other than continue with my low carb diet and working out).
Any ideas would be welcome.
