I am a 43 yr old, was DX as Type II ~ 2001. Special needs dad from 1993 to 1998, I believe much of the stress and years of not eating right contributed greatly to my DX.
Spent the last 11 years treating it when it was convenient. Drs put me on insulin in November 2009 but due to no insurance and a 40% salary cut, I was fff my meds totally from 11/2010 to 04/2012 when I was hospitalized for DKA. Paroled from the hospital on 4/22/2012 I am still recovering from the DKA.
The docs are treating me as if I was a T1 diabetic because of the way my BG trends. Probably will be undergoing tests soon to see if I may have been a T1 all along.
