Like "I was diagnosed at 31. First they thought it was type 2, then realized it was type 1. I lost 45 lbs. in 2 months prior to being diagnosed. Was only 98 lbs. when they put me in the hospital. Doctors finally realized it was Type 1 but could not control it with anything. Called it Brittle. I am now 39 and have never been in control. I can be at 500 and take 4 units of insulin and go no where or go down to 40 with in 2 hours. Any one know what I can do? I am terrified now that I am going to have a stroke or loss my eye sight.....etc. "
