Hi! New here. I just turned 40 and was diagnosed with LADA. I’m on a small dose of tresiba daily and I wear a Freestyle Libre. I seem to be doing okay most days,…I think, but I recently started experiencing hypo events. Mostly at night. I have been looking for local meet-ups or just about anyone who has had a similar experience to help me along the way. I have so many questions and I can’t find a single human who is nearby to talk to about this. I know the LADA diagnosis is less common, I feel like I will finally connect here on this forum.
Also it seems like every endo I have seen has their own ideas of how to treat me. For example, one doc instructed me to only take insulin before high carb meals… and another doc said to take a daily long acting such as tresiba. I did try to read legitimate studies and decided on my own that the doctor with the long acting treatment plan seemed best for me. Hoping to hear from others that I made the right choice. I feel like I did, because I feel much better on a daily basis for the most part. I was basically a hot mess for the previous 10+ months. I experienced extreme exhaustion to slurring my words. No clue how I made it through the school year. I couldn’t even wake up in the morning! The very next day after I took the long acting, I started to feel like my old self again. My mind was sharp and ready to do this!!! I am so glad that I listened to myself instead of the docs… because the doctors told me the reason I felt so horrible was because 1) I work full time 2) I just turned 40, and 3) I have a toddler! My apologies for spelling errors & typos… it’s late and I’m typing on my cell.Six weeks having LADA on 4 units of tresiba… a1c went from 6.1 to 5.8
Some of my questions include:
How do I sleep at night when my CGM records hypos?
GAD test result was 4,000 ish… is that normal?
Need some feed back from LADA peeps. Sine I’m not on a pump and still have some control, what’s important to know? I feel like I have to eat based on my CGM readings. I’m not even hungry half the time.
What is cosindered good control? 100-150? Here are some of my readings:
Thank you for listening if you read this.
