Wanted to thank everyone for the warm welcome, and also provide an update

Firstly, thank you for all the support, and invaluable information (specially the post from Marie B).

Just yesterday they confirmed me as LADA - tested positive for GADs. So, Type 1.5 (LADA), September 2013 (as I turned 36). In summary:

1. Walked into ER to find out I had a BG of 32 mmol/l, and A1C of 11.9 + DKA - This was a brand new onset (otherwise healthy and clean bill of health all my life).

2. Started of with Insulin, discontinued shortly after - but with Diet, Exercise, 1500mg of Metformin and being in my honeymoon period have brougt my A1C down to 6.2.

3. GAD test results finally came in. I tested positive with a reading of 49.

Thank you again.
