Huh, odd. So if metformin worked (just made me sick), then you had a high glucose resistance? Or didn’t check this?
Because I was so thin (about 125lbs) doctors didn’t even consider Type 2, even tho I was in my 30s. We actually crossed fingers that I would be T2 and just change my diet and exercise.
I would be very curious, now that your disease has advanced so far but still have some C-peptide, what your antibodies would be. With such a shifting treatment regimen, I’m surprised your doctors aren’t curious. If they just retested and showed Medicare a positive antibody result, I don’t think they could have refused care.
Metformin and Glipizide failed very quickly for me.
Since Victoza and the like are extremely expensive compared to my current treatment (20U basal / day), and I am not overweight, I cannot try them, unfortunately.
I actually joked with my Endo how fat I’d have to get before the insurance would cover Trulicity, Victoza, etc. Her answer was like gain 150 more pounds, lol!
