So I went to my clinic the other day and my Doctor told me that I am labeled as type 1 1/2 diabetes as my pancreas still produces a little insulin. I am now on trial medication along with my insulin to see how my numbers are. He said there is a tiny chance where I may not have to be on the pump anymore and only do a couple shots a day. Luckily my mom was there with me because I was sort of dumbfounded when he was telling me this…

Thats how it was for me when i first got diagnosed! My doctor called it my honeymoon period where my pancreas was still producing a little insulin which helped my numbers! But then my honeymoon period ended my pancreas wasn't producing anything. Take care of yourself! I hope that doesnt happen to you!
