"Seriously, this is a question for a psychiatrist. From what I gather, it is far from an exact science. There are plenty of antidepressants available. They just try different ones on you until you feel better. Same as with non-diabetics."

Had my endo appt Friday - it's just shy of a year since my dx, and my sugars have been running up just a bit higher than they had been over the last 2 months or thereabouts, so I was expecting my A1c to be higher.

So, last week, after seeing my numbers, which were basically 100% normal, my endo provisionally changed my diagnosis to T2, pending results from autoantibody tests. Well, those all came back. ICA2 was 2.9 (reference was under 1) and GAD65 was 165 (reference was around 3). Apparently, LADA patients are around 5-10 for GAD65, usually. So, crap, guess I am T1 - on 2 units of basal a day for months. No covering carbs since August. No idea what the hell is going on, and the endo is out of ideas as… Continue
