What type am I
I found out I was a Diabetic in 1972,,I was thirsty all the time, tired and so very thin.. 89lbs.. I took a urine test for a job, and sugar showed,, how high it was, I haven't a clue, I was 16 yrs old. I became very sick at 19 and was put on oral med, and did this for yrs... only had 1 low.. then onto Insulin... and this lasted til I got sick of being sick. I quit it. and over the next 10 yrs I was watching my BS and my A1c climb, I have been back on Insulin for 2 yrs.
I am 54, and take 1 shot in the am 11 units of Novolin N and at Dinner time 11 units. I know I need more, my goal is 100 am, it never gets closer than the teens. But I am without medical ins and no dr.. so I am cruising on my own..
So am I a 1.5 being diagnosed with such low weight at that time, or a Mody 2 or a Type 2 at 16 and 89 lbs, I had a strep throat at age 14 and it turned into a worse infection, my heart got damaged, and I have always thought my pancreas did also.
