This is what Type 1.5 looks like....
January 12, 2022 12:38am CST
So as I said in my last discussion, my doctor believes that I am type 1.5 diabetic now since getting DKA. Normally, eating a low carb diet would help my blood sugars lower throughout the day, and they would get a lot better over time. However, now I have been eating low carb but still see blood sugars in the 200s. For example, I will share today's food and blood sugars. Fasting - 208 After insulin shot and before meal 2 - 298 After meal 2 - 237 Foods I ate: Snack with antibiotic - sugar free pudding Meal 1 - Quest protein bar Meal 2 - 4 oz salmon with 2 mini sugar free hershey candies Meal 3 - Keto chow with heavy cream It is hard to eat food these days...I get full really quick. I don't even want to mention where my weight is after being in the hospital. However, this is my health now....

I have never heard this type 1.5 before. I hope you are able to find a good balance with this. Sometimes, depending on our ailments, it is so hard to pinpoint what things are and how to manage them. I had my annual physical today, and my weight is just much too heavy for my liking. However, I am so grateful that I'm not where I was with the weight several years ago when I was 25 lb from being 300. I always carried it fairly well, because I'm so tall and large boned, but I was in a lot of pain and really felt the effects on my body. I wish you so much good health and luck in dealing with your situation. My heart goes out to you.

Mostly just is type 2 that will need insulin for life. I have never been good at balance, lol. Sorry your weight is more than you like, but that is good that you are not where you were back then I can understand the pain and such. Gets hard to carry extra weight... Well thank you, going to be a long road ahead...first got to see the Endo
