Tell us more about you (optional)
Originally I was diagnosed as a T2 in 2009, I controlled it with diet and exercise (A1C's in the low 6's). August 2012 my levels started getting out of control, I tried Metformin then Glipizide.In the mean time, I lost a lot of weight and had no energy. On september 27th 2012, my doctor said that I was now a T1 diabetic and put me on insulin. I feel 100% better and am now learning to live life with insulin. When I was originally diagnosed, I asked my doctor about LADA and was told that once a T2, always a T2. Now, I have no faith in my doctors and realize that I need to educate myself, that's why I find this website to be very helpful.
