I was put in the hospital for my blood sugar being 609. And because I’m 41 and a little over weight, they diagnosed my with type 2 diabetes. But I was misdiagnosed and actually have type 1 diabetes. I was told that normally people with type 2 diabetes don’t get put on insulin right away. Usually there diabetes can be controlled with just oral medications and don’t need insulin for a few years. But I needed insulin right away. And only been diagnosed for about 2 months now and am already on long acting insulin and rapid acting insulin. Anyone else have this happen to them?

      Yes I have heard of LADA, it’s basically type 1 but they call it LADA when you are older than 30 years old and have type 1. Alot of people with LADA were first misdiagnosed with type 2 diabetes before the doctors realized that they had type 1 (LADA)

      I have heard they do miss diagnose when you’re older, some doctors don’t run the right test. Have you heard of LADA diabetes? It is happening to my step mother, she was starting off as type two but now her doctor is telling her it’s starting to turn into type one?? Crazy stuff.
