Well, that was unexpected

12 days ago, the symptoms all started to make sense. Excessive thirst and urination, fatigue. You know the drill. So I decided to check my blood sugar. Whoa! Over 600? I seriously did not expect that! I went to the doctor the next day. The PA was the only one available and he totally blew me off! He had me diagnosed as type 2 before he ever walked in the room. He listened to NOTHING I was saying about my symptoms and their sudden onset. He didn't listen to my family history of no type 2, no gestational diabetes, none of that. I left with a blood sugar over 300 and no real treatment plan except to take some metformin and come back in a month. Yeah, like that will ever happen! Thankfully, we know how to take care of someone with type 1 diabetes in our house!

Today, I was finally able to see a doctor that listened. He spent almost an hour with me, asked about my symptoms and when they started, and listened to me! I left with a diagnosis of type 1 diabetes (maybe type 1.5?) pending results of the c peptide test.

So there you have it. 3 people with type 1 diabetes, all in the same house. This is going to be interesting. KDA x 3!

Pin It!


  1. NO WAY!
