If Khurt hadn't brought it up, I'd still be in the dark about it. I had no clue that there was such a thing as type 1.5 diabetes
. And what's sadder is that I fit the description to the "T". I was originally diagnosed type 2, responded "well" to oral medications and eventually didn't. Tested positive for antibodies, so I got re-diagnosed as type 1.
Any more type 1.5 types around?
