I was diagnosed as a type 1 last year at 32 years old after having the swine flu with an AIC over 10 and test showing GAD antibodies with a very low c peptide. I am really very functioning and have found that if I take pretty much any basal I always go low. Typical that I rise over night and spike high with my first carb meal and then I function pretty good throughout the day.
I have basically taken myself off basal and take around 5 or less units of fast throughout the day and I think am function better.
My question, after all of that, is that my endo just says I am a type 1...Is type 1.5 sort of a self diagnosis? They said before "your just in the honeymoon" but I feel my honeymoon is going to last many many years.
