I was diagnosed with diabetes after a prolonged illness. I have had symptoms all of my life most remembered are low blood sugar incidents. I remember crawling to the refrigerator to get some peanut butter and milk before the age of 5. My doctors believe that I have type 2 diabetes but I believe that I may have type 1. After my diagnosis, My brother, sister, father and grandfather were found to have the same illness. Are there any tests or studies showing why type 1 is type 1 and type 2 is type 2 and where I may stand?
