WEIRD DIABETES, ANYONE HELP?

Hello,

I was diagnosed about a year ago with diabetes type 1, at 18 years.

Im worried about my blood sugar and I have a question.

Is it normal for the honeymoon period to come and go? My diabetes went away after a month of insulin. I stopped taking insulin and after half a year it came back after an infection for about 1 week. Then it disappeared again for 2 months. Now it came back for 1 day and went away.

What could this be? Im so scared it could be a brain tumour that caused my blood sugar levels to raise and it never was diabetes :( Has anyone hear of this? Could it be the case???

Please consult with your doctor about the issue. Ask for an appointment for next week. Please let us know what you find out.

Hello Catarina, as you say it is a bit odd. To me that sounds a bit like T2. T1 your pancreas does not work where T2 it can work a certain %. Good luck

I know! Im not overweight or anything but I did use to stress a lot and not go out. But they ran a GAD test on me which was positive. Can it still be T2 if GAD is positive? (If you know of this test)

is there a history of diabetes in your family? - there are actually several types of diabetes - MODY variants (which is due to a a dominant gene - hence the question about family history) has some sub-types that are very low level so can seem to come and go - it is closer to type 1 - impaired insulin production - than type 2 (insulin resistant).

as others say - you need to consult with your doctor.

I am type 2 diabetic and stress is the main trigger for me. Also if I am ill my sugar can be sky high when I have been unable to eat for days. I was diagnosed the year my mum was ill and died then the dog died and then my mum in law who I was really fond of. All this time I was struggling sing!e handed with a fast changing job where others doing exactly the same job has three people in post. I know that now I have retired I could banish it altogether if I could only get out and exercise but now I cannot because of my husband's problems.
