I am type 2 due to large cyst on pancreas which caused pancreatitis. They didn't think I would make it but I did. It just left me with a few scars and diabetes. Better than the alternative. :target: I
was put on metformin and it created pancreatitis again so to be safe I am now on Lantis...28 units at bed time. Also, no more than 30 carbs a meal. I was so sick that I lost 40 lbs from malnutrition. I am now at the weight I should be.

Hi Humhum, glad you've joined in.

Yup - I certainly agree about the alternative! My DKA experience really made me appreciate what a gift it is to be on this beautiful planet. We all have those battle scars though, don't we?
