I have a problem with my glucose dropping way down to the point of passing out at times..
I have been told I have Type 1, but yet other people say I have Type 2 ..
Can anyone give me some insight on this so I can clear it up with them??

Only lab testing and a doctors experience can tell you if you are type 1 or type 2. Who told you you were type 1 and why do they think that? Who told you you were type 2 and why do they think that? How low is your blood sugar going?

I'm assuming that you are taking insulin, if so that is the reason your blood sugar goes low, more accurately too much insulin is doing it. It sounds like you need to work with your doctor to tweak the amount of insulin you are taking until you have it right. It will take a little time but you ca get t a place where most of the time you can get it right.

I would talk to your doctor about it. He/she is the only one who can tell you which type you are.
