Lab results suggest I'm "early Type 1 diabetic", doc is keeping me on meds for time being?
Maybe I'm misinformed, but I was under the impression that if Metformin was controlling my blood sugar, then it couldn't be Type 1? Kind of baffled by this, I'm going to call tomorrow. I have another appointment with him in May, but if it is Type 1 as he's written, what should I do? My blood sugar levels have been relatively normal, so should I just keep an eye on them to make sure the medicine is still working? Is there a honeymoon period before Type 1 fully runs its course (i.e. zero insulin is produced)? If I am an "early Type 1", then the meds will eventually be useless as my pancreas totally gives out, right?
If it helps, I'm a 22 y.o. male. My mom's father had Type 1 diabetes as well. I was diagnosed as being diabetic a month ago, presumed to be Type 2, but apparently the genetic testing they did proved otherwise.
