The labels type 1 and type 2 are old labels. Old as in so 1980s. Today the labels are either IDDM, or NIDDM.

I am sure. Even if I am a T2, and not a T1, I am still insulin dependant. It probably mattered years ago when I was first showing symptoms of diabetes, but I was undiagnosed and uncontrolled.

I agree, but that's not always a possibility. In case of Canada - you need a family doctor - and the waiting list is YEARS long. It may be easier in the states though.
