I received my diagnosis from my GP on August 9th. My fasting BG was 317 and my A1c was 13.9. I was put on 20 units of Lantus per day. I followed up with an Endocrinologist on August 31st. He ordered a C-Pep and GAD. I received those results yesterday along with a note from the Endo. It stated that my GAD was "within range" however, the C-Pep was low (.74). The note stated that the GAD indicated that I was probably not Type I, however, because of the C-Pep results, I am insulin dependent. I do have a follow up appointment with the Endo, but I am also a little :-) impatient.
I have researched for hours here on Tudiabetes and throughout various internet sites and have only come away with more confusion. Am I a Type 2, with insulin dependence? Am I LADA?
Couple more items about me. I am 45 and not overweight. However, in the 18 months prior to diagnosis, I did lose 35 lbs (without trying of course), and would have been considered overweight, but not obese.
I know there are many, many experienced and knowledgable people on here and I would love to hear your thoughts and what I should be asking my Endo? Thanks for your replies!
