"I had an experience like that too yesterday. I was feeling low in energy so I tested and the meter said 378! Yeow! So I tested again: 157, and again, 129, all within the space of 5 minutes. I don't know what to make of it. This is with an Aviva…"
"Yes, it is reactive hypoglycemia, in combination with high bg. If I don't watch carbs, bg easily goes up to 250+ at times. I am trying to eat 40 g carb at breakfast, lunch, dinner, and 15 g each at 3 snacks, along with protein. Up til a couple…"

"Hello folks. I have joined this group to learn more. I don't have a MODY diagnosis but I know I have an atypical kind of diabetes. A little over a year ago at a routine physical, I had a high BG reading. A1C was 5.5 then and remains at 5.5.…"

"Thanks, Natalie. This is really helpful to hear about. Your situation sounds a lot like mine. Lost 32 pounds, no improvement in symptoms. Until recently I have always been at the upper end of normal BMI; now I'm a little below normal. For the…"
"I saw on a post you mentioned that you had a lot of low BG levels while you were not taking any meds. That would describe me. I started taking Metformin and had to stop because the lows were getting so bad. So now I am not on any med. This is…"
"Do you know any articles that talk about thin type 2? My doctor seems baffled about my situation, since my sugars have not improved with loss of 30 pounds. They spike after meals to 225 and then plummet to the 70s or even the 60s."
"My dietician gave me this recipe. I have not tried it because I don't like bananas in things. It is not quite a milkshake, but might help you gain weight. Probably to gain weight you should use regular tofu, not low fat.
6 oz Crystal Lite -…"
"My dietician has me eating lots of nuts to keep from losing more weight. Do you like nuts?
You're right though, all the literature about Type 2 assumes you want to lose weight. I've lost enough -- 32 pounds by now. I had cut out most carbs…"
I had one doc tell me that I likely had Graves disease (because of the weight loss) but I had NO other symptoms and in fact it turned out that I ha Hashimotos disease -- quite the opposite of Graves. I've learned that you have to question doctors and push until you are satisfied with a diagnosis or treatment.

I was misdiagnosed as a T2 before being properly diagnosed about 8 months later in 2008. I had to get super sick before anyone would even check. The oral meds worked for about 2 months but then my BG started to skyrocket. Even then the endo tested for Cpeptides but didn't do the antibody testing. I ultimately changed endos. The new one took a look at my thyroid on an ultrasound and saw that I had Hashimotos. That's what led to the antibody testing because once she knew I had one autoimmune disease she assumed I had T1 too. But I went through a period of being super sick -- bgs averaging in the 500s and a 70 lb weight loss before I could convince the doctors that I really wasn't sitting around eating sugar to drive up my BG.
