***up date*** Hearts Jounrey, rsfletcher and squarksx
Son has seen a private diabetic specialist of 25 years, below is the outcome....


1. At present your glucos is completely normal - so you must have Type 2 in remission due to diet and exercise or Type 1 in a good honeymoon OR we have also seen very rare cases of remitting Type 1 when it disappears for >10 years+ and counting.
2. You should stop measuring your glucose except may be once a week after a big meal (your glucose is completely normal - if the diabetes comes back if Type 1 or Type 2 it will be very slow)
3. You have a very healthy diet - this is good for all of us but like the rest of us the occasional burger or chocolate is fine - there is no magic diet whatever any individual says on the internet for Type 1 (and any diet that reduces calories works for Type 2)

I encourage you to get on with your life while in my opinion you do not have diabetes attend the occasional hospital follow up clinic. You are in very good control

I'm glad that a specialist thinks he is not type 1. However, I, personally, would have issues with this doctor's statements.
a) #1 is making assumptions, if not type1 so must be type 2.
b) #2 is if his high BG issue came upon him suddenly to begin with, why could it not come upon him suddenly again. If it does, DKA doesn't happen slowly. I would check my BG more often than once a week after a big meal, I would test it after any really carb heavy snack or meal, night of drinking, or if I was feeling "different".
c) #3, if not a misquote, calories don't make BG. A diet low in calories, if composed of mostly carbs is not good for a type 2.
d) final quote "do not have diabetes" contradicts first point "must be type 2"

Again, I am glad your son is not definitely diabetic.

It appear there's no way to determine what actually happened for him to have that high BG event. This may, or may not, happen again. Occasional checking BG is prudent. I think the doctor's conclusion is very good advice... get on with your life.

Pleased with what doctor said mbuster, but like you a little confused also. I believe from what son said is that if/until this comes to anything it could be a very slow on set of either type 1 or 2
So just get on with your life.
My son does check his bloods once a day, he said he finds it reassuring to do this and isn't stopping doing this

Yes VeeJay was good news to hear him say that, but he is still going to keep an eye on his blood sugars he said

I have the perfect symbol to represent your sons mysterious condition and what type he may or may not have. Growing up I became I was a big fan of a TV character who kept everybody guessing. The best part of this symbol is that it can be worn so when anybody asks if your son is a diabetic, it should be self explanatory.

That one autoantibody that was positive last month the ZnT8, is only reason i see to continue to monitor his glucose and diet. If he is consistent in his daily total carb intake and knew how many carbs he ate a day on average, that would be even better. If he notices he is gradually running higher glucose levels over time or his A1c is jumping or is feeling more sluggish, then have him discuss with Dr. To be even more pro active, he can lower carb intake and increase fat and protein

I thought of you Hearts as you said very similar to the specialist ...
He didn't say much about the ZnT8 test, just that is the only reason to check after heavy meal
