Hi, I’m new here. Here’s some background. I had never had my blood sugar checked until I had my son and I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes. 2 years later my A1C is right below the prediabetes cut off. I recently started taking Seroquel for sleep and started to feel the effects of diabetes similar to when I had gestational diabetes (discontinued the Seroquel as it can affect diabetes). Fasting sugars are around 112 and goes as high as 197 on days I eat carbs. Days I avoid carbs I feel much better and fasting the next day is 91. Days without carbs I can think more clearly and my mood is stable. I have also had problems in my life with gastropareisis and a failed gallbladder 5 years ago with no apparent cause. I am 5’2 and 94lbs (unintentional weight Loss of 10lbs in a year. I don’t fit the bill for type 2 diabetes. I am not looking for a diagnosis, but have any of you guys had experience with any of this? I have told doctors and keep getting told my A1C is still fine and they brush it off. I have received a diagnosis of mood disorder not other wise specified due to major mood swings throughout the day. I follow up with my doctor In a month and plan to demand a glucose test. I’m honestly feeling quite scared and I’m just searching for information on your experiences with LADA and possible effects of it on mental health. I fear this has been going on for about 10 years but is getting worse. Thank you for your time.
edited to say my doctor appointment was moved up and I’ll follow up with you guys! I appreciate the information and the concern.
