Hello! My name's Liz. Been looking at this forum for a few days and decided to join finally I'm 19, from England. I have a funny diabetes story... was diagnosed Type 1 Diabetic at 16, no ketones though, and put on insulin for 6 months or thereabout until my levels dropped! Throughout that time I was also eating to accomodate for the insulin, rather than how it ought to be. I went for two years thinking that I was simply on a honeymoon period - without insulin, because thats what my Endo told us. Until I got a new GP who I totally flummexed by telling him all I knew which was Type 1 honeymoon period no insulin He then mentioned MODY diabetes being possible, however neither of my parents have diabetes - mother had gestational apparently.. Endo now thinks slow onset type 1, however i'm a little skeptical since my number range is pretty 'set' between 5 - 13mmol sometimes up to 19 and have been 22mmol along with illness. I'm also prone to hypos when I haven't eaten for a long time or am more active than usual. I've had c-peptide which was normal, a pancreatic scan which i'm pressuming was fine since we never heard anything, I've not ever produced ketones, I have negative antibodies. So bit of a pickle here, and still don't know whats going on. I manage by relatively low-carb diet, I don't exercise but i'm pretty active, walk alot. I'm also coeliac just to add that in the mix! Feel free to ask any questions Or anything you haven't understood.
