    *waves* I'm new here, but alas, not new to diabetes! :(

    Was dx'ed 13 years ago at the age of 16 with what my docs thought may be MODY (long family history, little, if any, insulin resistance), but decided, cause I was a bit overweight, that they'd treat it with oral meds, a la T2. 13 years later and my endo's switched me over to insulin on Lantus + Novolog MDI routine. Am still learning the ropes of managing my control with insulin, and the doc's been pretty slow in acknowledging that I may have MODY rather than T2. Figured I probably needed some extra support too! So hey there! :D

    Hello angua, welcome to this wonderful community! I hope you are doing well after 13 years of Type 1. You will find insulin to be excellent at giving you good control. I have been Type 1 for 64 years and I am very healthy. I was diagnosed in 1945 when I was 6.

    If you have any questions, please ask. There is very good support here.

    Richard

    Thanks guys! I've been mainly lurking around, reading old threads and things like that. I probably will have a whole rash of questions eventually, but so far a lot of the old threads have been fantastic, and enlightening me about things I never knew before (like why female bodies are so darn weird!). I'm sure I'll have lots of questions eventually too!
