Can a person be diagnosed with Type 2 then yrs later be diagnosed as Type1? I was diagnosed as Type 2 early '90s. PKD runs in my family and I was diagnosed w/it in' 87. I went on Lantus between 2000-2002. I started dialysis (Hemo) in '09 and my kidney doc took me off Amaryl then and put me on Novolog. So now the medical profession says I am Type 1 just because I cannot take Amaryl cause of the dialysis and have to take insulin instead. I thought that Type 1 was juvenile(sp) diabetes…that you were born with it. I am hoping to change to PD while I sleep and get off Hemo dialysis as it is hard on the body.
