During my last Endo visit I asked for an antibody test just because I was curious and I wanted to know before my daughter was born (spent week in ICU , Fall of 2006, with DKA when I was dxed and there was never an antibody test run). Well this morning I go the results I have antibodies and I have left the T2 camp. I had always hoped that with enough exercise and weight loss that my diabetes would go into remission for a while maybe even years. Now I know that will not happen. I am worried for Abigail (due September 16th) will she have to face the big D. To top it all off all my quicksets have lot numbers starting with 8 and I no longer have primary Dr (he left the practice and no one told me or my wife). Heck all I need now is for my dog to run away and truck to die and I have the perfect subject matter for a country song.
