    Sudden onset and LADA

    Hello everyone.
    I was diagnosed August 2016 at 36 years of age, when hospitalized for DKA with 400 BG and a 8.7 A1C. Fasting BG at all yearly physicals prior to Dx were all normal and have absolutely no family history of any type of diabetes.
    In the early months of 2016 I had unexplainable gained >50 lbs at a rate of 2/3 lbs a week which I attributed to starting Effexor for anxiety since my eating habits had not changed. I titered off Effexor in May 2016 and started feeling sick and weak, which I attributed to withdrawal from Effexor but in hindsight was clearly high BG.
    I spent the summer months barely being able to function, and kept attributing the feeling to everything from heatstroke to Serotonin syndrome. Suddenly I stoped gaining weight, but rather started to lose weight rapidly and had lost 30 lbs in 3 weeks by the time I was hospitalized in August.
    I was given a type 1 Dx at the hospital (due to a 5.0 GAD65) and released with a Humalog/Lantus Rx which my primary continued though she reclassified me as a type 2 due to being 70 lbs overweight. However, in the months following my Dx I lost 85 lbs (in 6 months) and even with the weight loss, my BG was impossible to control though I was on MDI of insulin.
    By April of this year, when I finally saw an Endo, my A1C had risen to 11.5 and I had stated to develop neuropathy and retinopathy symptoms. My Endo added metformin to my insulin and lo and behold my BG was under control -with a few hypos a week which I had never had before- and 8 weeks later my A1C had lowered from 11.5 to 6.2.
    The radical effect of the metformin had my Endo believing that I may be type 2 as my original GAD (5.0) was close to range and could be misinterpreted, so 2 weeks ago my Endo lowered my insulin, ordered all antibody tests and a fasting c-peptide, and I left the endo convinced I was a type 2, and with my new healthier weight and lifestyle I could work on getting off insulin, and put my diabetes into remission.
    I was sooooooo excited these past two weeks. Having this new control over my BG with MUCH lower insulin doses (went from a daily 70u of lantus to 25u, and from about 40u of humalog to 5-10u depending on amount of exercise/carbs) and having convinced myself I was a type 2 and my weight and bad eating habits prior to diagnosis to blame for the onset. I was 100% determined to maintain a healthy weight, eat low carb, and exercise more believing I would be free from the disease in the near future.
    Today I found out my GAD65 antibodies went from 5.0 to >250 and my fasting c-peptide (never previously tested) is 0.5 (range: 1.1 to 4.4) and was given a definitive LADA diagnosis.
    I AM CRUSHED. I feel defeated, my CDE recommended I start pumping, which I refused to even consider yet as I just got my BG under control on MDI after months of struggling and feel quite overwhelmed at the moment just with the MDI and testing. After 10 months it FINALLY hit me that I am REALLY REALLY stuck with this disease for life.
    My greatest shock, after having convinced myself (with help from my endo) that my previous GAD result was equivocal, that it is now indicative of a severe attack on my pancreas from my immune system and not knowing why.
    I apologize for the long post, but although I have lurked around here over the last few months, today I felt the need to finally summarize what I've lived with these past 9 months since my diagnosis.

    Welcome to DD although I know you do not want to be here.
    Your situation is far more common than you realize. I don't know what you thought/think diabetes is that you put it into "remission". Many T2 can gain and maintain control with diet and exercise but then some of them have to use insulin. A Type 1 must take insulin. When your numbers improved you may have been in what is commonly called the Honeymoon Phase.
    We have many members who pump their insulin and love it. I am a T2 using MDI. Can you explain why you feel so overwhelmed and crushed? Would you feel this way if you had gotten a diagnosis of a heart, kidney, or liver problem? You now know what the medical issue is and you are taking measures to gain control. Good for you.

    Welcome to DD.
    Sorry about the ups and (many) downs you had to go through to get a definitive diagnosis. As a LADA myself who was treated as a type 2 for the first 18 months, I have a hint of the frustrations you must have gone through. Just be assured that one can live a good life and it is possible for many to keep BG under good control on MDI.
    If your finances permit, a pump might be helpful, but many of us are able to do well on MDI. I would personally think that a CGM would be more helpful, but since at the present time I'd have to pay for it entirely out of pocket, I haven't felt it would make control enough better to warrant the cost. But everyone's situation is different. Over time, you'll be able to reach the conclusion on how important it might be to your own control.
    To fine tune your control, may I suggest two books: Using Insulin by John Walsh and Think Like a Pancreas by Gary Scheiner. You are at this point well beyond the point of needing the starting insulin sections, of course, but there are a lot of ideas in both books that are often missed by the doctors and other medical team members in their training for new diabetics. Either book might help to fill in most gaps.

    There is strong evidence that eating fewer carbohydrates helps improve blood sugars.

Eat fewer carbohydrates and you will typically end up with less sugar in your blood. For those with type 2 diabetes or are newly diagnosed with type 1, fewer carbohydrates mean that your body’s natural insulin production will have an easier ...
