Re: [IP] T1 Diagnosis

I was diagnosed in 1996, as a type 2. At the time I was 29 and my weight was
130 and dropped to 105lbs.  I really didn't fit the type 2 mold, but really
didn't fit the type 1 totally either. I was just re-diagnosed  type 1 in
march of this year.  I have gain my weight-130-135lbs  I feel outstanding
now.  I thought I was an unusual case, maybe maybe not.  I just know that my
body is reacting 110% better on insulin than on the oral meds.   Don't know
if this helped any?
