I’m new to Tudiabetes… I found you in the search for answers.
With my last 3 pregnancies at ages 31, 33, & 36 I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes. After my last son was born, the diabetes did not go away. I was then diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. I have been treating this with diet and metformin for over 6 years. At my last dr appt I asked my dr why I was so different from the typical t2. I have no family history and I am not overweight. She then told me she suspected I might be a variation between t1 & t2 referred to as t1.5. I asked if there was a test she could do to determine if I was t1.5. I was able to access my lab results online a couple days ago, but have not talked with the dr yet. I was wondering if someone here could tell me if my test results are pointing towards LADA/t1.5 as I’m assuming they do.
C-peptide 1.2 final ng/mL 1.1-4.4
Insulin, Fasting 5 final ulU/mL 2-25
Insulin Autoantibody <0.4 final U/mL <0.4
That last test really confuses me because both numbers are the same.
Any insight would be great! I go back to see my dr on the 22nd. She is an internist and I’ve been seeing her for all of my health needs for 7+ years. I also had surgery to remove most of my thyroid and my gallbladder almost 9 years ago. Earlier this year I was also diagnosed with Sjogren’s Syndrome which is an autoimmune disease along with a hiatal hernia.
