Well, well, well. I did some digging, well really, my endo's staff finally uploaded some of my files on his web portal for my view. My endo has classified me as not Type 1 or Type 2, which I am surprised because at my initial second opinion for diabetes visit in August with him he said I had Type 2 diabetes.
Now, in my web file, he lists me as "Secondary Diabetes". Looking that term up in the medical dictionary---it means my diabetes was brought on by my prednisone medication due to my RA.
Anyone's doctor ever use this term with them? This is just getting weirder and weirder. First he won't run the autoimmune tests because "he doesn't do those kind of tests" and now he's classified me as Secondary Diabetes.
Is this his way of saying LADA without saying it and without doing the tests?
