Any T2s or T2s that were then diagnosed as LADAs that didn’t fit the T2 profile? Since being diagnosed in April of this year, as a T2, I have been adamant that it just can’t be true… I must admit denial played a huge factor initially…I asked for my thyroid to be checked and everything else just to be sure. My endo did run antibody tests…several of them to be exact and they all came back negative…So T2 was my diagnosis… I’m 31, 145 lbs and 5’6"…nowhere near overweight and I lead a very active lifestyle… My BGs at diagnosis were in the 3-400s and my fasting was always over 225…crazy! I was immediately put on insulin, and I slowly saw some improvement… 20 units of lantus and 7 units of humolog at each meal. My endo couldn’t ask me to change my diet or exercise because neither of those were issues for me. Well as we approach July, my BGs are creeping back up…fastings have been 150+ and my numbers throughout the day stay over 200. My diet is extremely healthy and without trying I have actually been losing weight.
From reading topics on here I quickly realize that everyone’s diabetes is different…Any thoughts or feedback I would greatly appreciate… My next appointment is in August…Pending my A1c results, I’m certain my Endo will just increase my insulin…Do you think it would be a good idea to get a 2nd opinion? Could I truly be a LADA?
