Hi,
Perhaps you might ask your doctor to order the blood tests which would identify which type of diabetes you have.
I had blood tests to rule out type 1 when I was questioning if I had type 1 or 2.

What does your doctor say? Have you been tested for the antibodies typical of a type 1? How much insulin do you take for each shot?

Ask your doctor! I am a t2 that started on pills, and now I am on 4 shots a day also but am still a t2.
