Hi! I am new to the forum, diagnosed Type 1 just about a month ago. I have struggled with an eating disorder (restriction and binge/purge) for about 17 years now. After routine blood work, my MD drew a 7.0 A1C and then a 7.5 a month later. Concerned, she referred me to an Endo who brushed off Type 2 (based on other factors) but did testing to be sure. My tests came back with low c-peptides and high antibodies confirming Type 1. I have made some great progress in my eating disorder recovery but am terrified at the thought of being completely insulin dependent while having an eating disorder (I am currently still producing some insulin and am very lucky the disease was caught early on for me).
I am here to learn and gain support
