Short backstory, because I’ve already posted the long one; Got diagnosed with LADA about 6 weeks ago, was supposed to start Januvia in 2 months, but sugars got higher and started with basal insulin almost 2 weeks ago instead.
Now I’m supposed to start with like 0.5-1 units of bolus insulin in the morning, cause I always spike after breakfast.
I don’t really know what my question is, I just think I want to know if anyone else has had it like this? How long did it work?
I’m kind of stuck between “Great, only low doses of insulin for now, hope it lasts awhile” and “jeez, can’t I just get the whole darn thing completely right now? I hate waiting around for my pancreas to die on me”. It’s been six weeks of waiting around for some clarity, and I just feel like it’s not gonna end until it’s full on typ 1. Which I guess is stupid, because then it’s still a looooot to think about, and try out and so on.
I think I have yet to fully understand how dangerous and exhausting this disease is in the long run. I just want to be “over” with this first phase…
