I was just diagnosed last week as a T2. I’m 31, lead a very active lifestyle and am not overweight. I have 0 clue how this even happens. I just had frequent nights off waking up to pee and drinking any and everything I could get my hands on for weeks. I thought I had a UTI however my results showed ketones in my urinalysis and after a finger stick I was 316 and on my way to the ER. The thing is I felt perfectly fine, besides the thirst. I’m currently on 15 units of lantus in the morning and 5 units of humolog with each meal. My BGs haven’t budged a bit. My fastings are still 170-225 sometimes and during the day I stay in the 200s. Rarely making into 175 range. How long does it take for the BGs to get back to normal? I eat a low carb diet but there’s been no real reflection of the all the meds and needle sticks I’m doing.
My endo also isn’t convinced that I’m a true T2. She says that some people my age and profile, present as T2 upfront then become T1.5. Her goal now is to get my numbers in range. Any thoughts? Has anyone been diagnosed as a T2 then had it changed?
