April replied to Regina's discussion 'A lukewarm rant: You know they have machines to measure your blood sugar?'
"HaHa! I weigh 107 (I'm 5'1") Actually, someone on another thread was talking about how exercise was very helpful for them, and they, too, were MODY3 - usually not characterized by insulin resistance. All exercise did for me was lower…"

April replied to Regina's discussion 'A lukewarm rant: You know they have machines to measure your blood sugar?'
"Hi, Regina - Yes, absolutely - I test, test, test and, fortunately, I usually eat low carb and the same foods. But, wouldn't you know, I went out to a restaurant and had some yummy french bread with butter. And I think I would have been fine if…"

April replied to SilverLining's discussion 'Considering administering insulin myself' in the group Monogenic Diabetes (aka MODY)
"Way to go, Loquacity. I must say - I have rather become a one woman advocate, rabble-rouser and educator about MODY. Their website is pretty badly designed and written. The person I spoke to there promised me he would run the new copy by me before…"

In December, 2010 I was diagnosed as an insulin deficient Type 2. However, after digging into my family history, I came up with the theory I might be MODY, convinced my endocrinologist to refer me to Children's Hospital cor genetic counseling and testing and . . . "voila" on August 26, 2011 it became official: MODY3 due to defect on the HNF1-alpha gene, causing insufficient insulin production! I am on small doses of basal (Levemir) and Humulin R for bolus.

Hi April! My name is Danielle & Melitta had replied to my post where I was explaining that I was trying to figure myself out (LADA vs MODY vs strange :)). Dr. Hattersley had encouraged me to get MODY testing, as he thought I was MODY2 & it would impact my current treatment (I'm pregnant). I'm seriously considering it. I so hope this isn't too personal, but I'd love to hear about your experience with the testing & if you'd recommend it whenever you had a chance!

Hope you are having a great celebration this evening and that your big work day went well. I don't know much about Mody3. Do you have a good link that describes it?
Things are going well because I love the Autumn. We just had Thanksgiving and I went out for 2 turkey dinners. The leaves are changing and the world seems full of beauty and peace. Cheers! Joanne
