If you were not a child when diagnosed, At what age and how did you find out?
My doctor seems to think I’m an odd case, But from what I can see adult onset isn’t all that uncommon. I found out when I was pregnant with my dd at the normal glucose test at my OB appointment (I did tell them I had gestational diabetes with baby #2 and that maybe I should be checked earlier…they said no, but that bit them in the rear) Anyway, Just an hour or so after getting home from the OB appointment the ER called me and said get here ASAP! My blood sugar was almost 800.
So my new doctor walks in (cute as a button by the way…Old, but adorable lol) and tells me I have acute adult onset of type 1 diabetes. He continually kept telling me ITS NOT TYPE 2 and ITS NOT GESTATIONAL! You have it for LIFE! THIS IS NEVER GOING TO GO AWAY! sigh
