Hello everyone. I put this question under Type 2 even though the doctor still doesn't know what type I am yet. Here is my question and story.
I was diagnosed with Type 2 in 2006, but after a long time of uncontrolled sugars, mistreatments, etc, my sugars spun out of control. I finally switched endos and my new endo took an A1C and C-Peptide test on my first visit. Based on both tests, he determined that I was Type 1 and placed me on insulin. It devastated my life!
I have been on insulin for 3 months now and sugars are under control. So, I went to my endo yesterday, where he took another A1C and he said my levels were amazingly better, better than he thought it could be. Now he questions if I am Type 1 or just an insulin dependent Type 2. He has also ordered another C-Peptide test and I get the results next week.
I am really awaiting the C-Peptide results. My question is is it possible for the C-Peptide to improve once sugars are under control? If my A1C has improved, can my C-Peptide improve too? Could I really only be Type 2 and not Type 1?
