I was diagnosed with diabetes in November 2016 but misdiagnosed as type 1. I was immediately put on insulin and the weight that I lost returned gradually. I was on insulin for 8 months and was sick most of the time because I was not getting the correct medication. It is only after seeking a second opinion that I started to improve as I was put on glucophage and diaglucide. I've been on the oral medication for 4 months and on insulin for 8 months. I started losing weight (like 5 kgs) in the last two months. Could this be as a result of the oral medication? I think that it is as my mother is type 2 and she has been on the same medication for 2 years. She lost a lot of weight and has not gained any weight ever since.
