My name is Meredith and i was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in July 2009. I seemed to have caught it really early, so they later changed my diagnosis to latent autoimmune diabetes or type 1.5 because my beta cells were not being destoryed quite as fast as they originally thought.
Most people with type 1.5 go about 6 months after thier original diagnosis before they have to begin insulin injections. Im on month 9 and keeping my sugars relatively under control.
Im on a number of medications usually only used on patients with type 2 diabetes, but are effective thus far because of my unique situation. My health care providers predict that i have a few months before i have to go on insulin, but it is hard to predict exactly when.
I was just wondering if there is anyone else out who is in the same position as me or who has been in this position? Or if anyone has any feedback
