I have been hearing alot how people are misdiagnosed with one type and actually having the other type. How is that determined exactly? What are the major symptoms that a person would experience that would make them feel they are diagnosed wrong?
What are the tests can be performed to confirm a diagnosis of either or at least eliminate on if he Types?
I am a taking battery of medications, supplements and byetta that has lowered my BS to some degree. But my endo is not happy so she started me on levemir in the mornings. Now the levemir (taken as perscribed) in combo with the other meds. with drop my BS to about 120-135 with no problem. I actually did a couple of days with just the levermir (at a higher dose than prescribed) w/metformin will drop me down below 100.
So I have been wondering and actually type 1.5 or just an Insulin dependant Type 2. Either is fine with me because I am around a bunch of lovely people here at tudiabetes!!!...
