This thread is your oyster. Feel free to login and report on how things are going, even if it's just "zomg just fell into a chocolate cake, brb".

I don't judge, ... mostly because of how many chocolate cakes I've tripped and fallen into.

Lol whenever things are crazy I am known to say "I want to put my face into a chocolate cake" how funny eh? I'm careful not to of course, but it is definitely close to mind when I'm climbing the walls!

Speaking of chocolate cake, I have to make one as a part of a meal tomorrow for a family in need. I'll need to pray to resist temptation lol

Actually, putting your face into a chocolate cake might be harmless - its when you put the chocolate cake INTO your face that the problems start!

Ugh.... daytime insulin added to the mix now. Testing for Addisons and a load of other bits of awesomeness.

Not thrilled about more insulin being added in... but this guy seemed very knowledgeable and we got on well. Follow up in a week.

Mixed emotions for sure.

Fast acting insulin is one of the common treatments for controlling blood sugars. It should help you a lot in that area. I am sure you know this, but just in case I will say this anyway. Just be sure you understand how to calculate you dosages....I am not on that type of insulin, but I know many who are and if you do not calculate your dosages properly you can have a dangerously low blood sugar....

Hope this helps, I am glad your doctor seems to be very well informed...

Good Luck

Insist on some training with the insulin if it isn't offered. There are resources about how to calculate insulin:carb ratios and what the timing is for the type of insulin - but you shouldn't have to go looking for it.

Lol oh Canada! Land of the free health care, eventually.

I'm waiting for the diabetes education clinic to set an appt for me. Until then, I'm on my own with a brief overview... just a standard amount per meal to get me out of the teens and will be taught correction and carb counting.

So far it's going "ok" - I had one low, 3.2 - that was indeed scary as hell... and in fact I was happy to be a bit high than risk it again. I've been reading a lot this past week and a half... including Think Like a Pancreas. I get the basic idea of carb counting and correction... still have to figure out my sensitivity factor.

My six year old is currently talking non stop about her Shopkins lol not sure I can complete this post and have it make sense!

Still waiting on anti body tests, but c peptide was low. Internalist is saying I was misdiagnosed as a type 2 and am actually a type 1 - type 2 meds just slowed down the destruction of my beta cells.

Type 1... another mental shift to make. Keeping my stuff on me at all times, testing times, eating times... honestly it's like a totally new diagnosis now anyway, as diet and exercise were not having the slightest impact after I got home from hospital... just insulin.

Now taking novorapid and switched from levemir to lantus.

Hope all are well! Just wanted to share my update... will also look to see if there's anything here on LADA diagnosis' ... will have to wait till after the kids go down though.

Good move. You'll probably know as much or more than the DE by the time you get to your appointment. At the very least, you'll be able to ask intelligent questions.

Jenny Ruhl (of BS101) has several articles on LADA. This was one of many that came up on a search [LADA] on her website.
