I originally posted here years ago when I was first diagnosed as a Type 2 Diabetic. Through diet/exercise and oral medication I was doing well but still my A1C climbed over the years. When it went over 7 my doctor suggested it was time to try adding in some long lasting lantus. The addition of 15 units per day has helped. I have also started using the Freestyle Libre as a way to monitor my Blood Sugars and that is going OK. All of this might seem like overkill for some but I am a data person and also like to know where things stand. I am 47, early menopause, 5’5" and 138 pounds.
A doctor I saw suggested i get tested for LADA Type 1 and I feel like I got conflicting results from two tests. I am going to talk to him next week but am wondering if any of you can help.
C-peptide levels are at .47 which as I understand is low indicating a lower level of insulin being made indicative of LADA.
My GAD65 levels were <5 which is normal and indicates I am making enough insulin
So what would others make of this?
Ultimately it doesn’t matter much bc I am doing the same thing to manage either right now.
Thanks every one. I also have some CGM questions that I will post sepearately.
