Doctors fail again


#1

Hi,

I was diagnosed with Type 2 in 2010…and before that for years I had
been complaining of frequent visits to the toilet and they failed to
diagnose my diabetes then.

I’ve just recently had the antibodies test and the local hospital rang
me this morning to tell me I have Type 1 LADA, and I’ve to go in
tomorrow for Insulin.

I’ve been on the max does of Metformin and Gliclazide and they have been
doing very little to bring my BS under control, so this actually does
not come as a surprise to me, but I’m a bit scared now as to what this
means…guess I’ll find out more tomorrow!

Basically, you will find that injecting insulin will make the control of blood sugar so much easier and effective.

You will probably be given a choice of how you wish to manage your injections. Some of us choose to have Multiple Daily Injections (MDI) which means we have to inject two different types of Insulin. We inject a long acting insulin once a day which keeps our blood sugar at a steady level for 24 hours. At mealtimes we inject a fast acting insulin to work on the food we eat. This is the only method I have ever tried. I find that it works very well for me.
