Do you have info on this type of diabetes? only 10% of diabetics have this type, we are deficient and resistant…hard to control.

hmmm very interesting. I wonder if this may be what is my problem. I wonder if I was misdiagnosed because this seems to fit me better.

The doctors are having the same issue with me right now. I fit into both categories BUT C-Peptide came back another direction than what we thought. Someone was telling me and I was able to confirm in my research, that the C-Peptide test they run IS NOT 100% accurate either. I am going to bring this issue up with my new Endo I just started seeing a couple of months ago.

C-peptide is accurate, but it can change quickly just like blood sugar so you have to time the test to get the information you want.
