It's officially official...

I'm definitely a Type 1.5 diabetic. I got the call while I was out and about today but talked to the endo's nurse, who couldn't answer any of my questions. Basically all she said is I'll have to stay on insulin from here out and see the endo every three months. I have an appointment with him at the end of May and hopefully he'll have more information for me. I hate being left with all these questions and no answers.

To say I'm upset is something of an understatement. I've suspected this and yes, the phone call last week with the GP's assistant pretty much confirmed my suspicions but to hear it again, in no uncertain terms, no 'we think' or 'it looks like' or 'you appear to be', was really not what I wanted. On the other hand, a lot of things make more sense to me now.

I have a lot of questions to ask, a lot. And no answers for awhile.

I really like your blog. I was diagnosed with LADA 2 years ago and wondered if that's what you have too. It is not fun at all but I manage. You aren't alone though. Good luck.

Hi there and thanks for the comment. I don't know if I have LADA but my guess is I do. Since I was about 37 when I was diagnosed and it isn't Type 2 it's a pretty safe bet. Hopefully I'll know more after I see the endo later this month. It's good to know I'm not alone. :)
