Hi Everyone! I'm new to TuDiabetes. Just over a year ago, at the age of 34 I was diagnosed with LADA - Type 1.5 Diabetes. I was originally misdiagnosed as Type 2. That happens a lot, I guess, when it comes to people like us. I started my insulin pump about 3 months after diagnosis and will start my CGM this week! I'm very excited to have better control! :-)I'lll keep everyone posted and let you know how the CGM process goes! So excited!

Welcome to our family. You are right that misdiagnosis happens often, I'm glad you have gotten the correct diagnosis

A CGM is a great tool for controlling BG. We are excited with you.
