It’s hard to believe that it has already been two years since that fateful day I walked into the PM Care clinic with what I believed to be a bladder infection and walked out with a diagnosis of type two diabetes at age 22. My entire world was flipped upside down. After five months of numbers like the one above happening FAR too often, I was reclassified as type one. I had never been type two at all- the doctor I had seen didn’t know much about diabetes other than the misconception that only children develop type one diabetes, so she assumed that, being 22, I was type two (which is insulin resistant) and never did C Peptide testing. I began on Levemir immediately after my rediagnosis in December 2012, and Novolog in January 2013. However I loved the idea of an insulin pump, and in December 2013 I became a pumper. Recently, I began working on tightening up my range. I currently aim to spend most of my time with my blood sugar between 85 and 175. It’s been difficult, but it will be worth it in the long run.
