My daughter who is 26 and pretty thin was diagnosed today with an A1c of 8.8 and a fasting glucose of 136. Her doctor didn't specify if it was Type 1 or Type 2, but from reading on the internet, it looks like it is most likely Type 2. She had a normal glucose reading in late December, so to me this seems like sudden onset. Her doctor has prescribed Metformin 500mg for now with plans to increase to 1000mg eventually. She is the first person in our family to be diagnosed with this that I am aware of. I suppose I was wondering if anyone could give me any direction on if the seems to be Type 1 or Type 2. Thank you!!!
