I'm 34 and was just diagnosed with Type 1 (or type 1b or type 1.5). I think at my age its considered LADA. I'm strictly on oral meds right now (Actos+Metformin) and definitely honeymooning. Can anyone provide any insight towards the debate of whether or not I should ask my doctor to go on insulin right away in an effort to preserve my remaining beta cells? I mentioned it to him and he seemed to think that the medication would accomplish the same thing, however another diabetes resource I've read advised not taking metformin for LADA.
I also noticed that at clinicaltrials.gov there are some studies to participate in, some of which require a recent diagnosis. Has anyone investigated this? Any input or recommended resources would be appreciated.
