My partner has been diagnosed with T1D about 3 months ago at the age of 26 and, wow, what a journey it has been already so far. This is not something that runs in his family (or mine) so this learning & lifestyle change is all very new to both of us.
He is still in his honeymoon stage, so we have not been able to establish his insulin ratio as of yet and I stilll think maybe its somewhat easier to manage at this stage until he stops producing insulin completely.
My question for this group is around his blood test results. All the autoantibody testings were negative including the GAD antibody (which I believe is generally the test that determines T1D diagnosis). He is now participating in a local Panda Study with an Endo on this as apparently it is rather rare and there isnt many answers. So I thought I would reach out on this forum and see if anyone else has experienced something similar and what does it mean.
