i am awaiting Blood test Results which will hopefully determine which type I am . After speaking to my diabetic nurse she thinks I am more type 1. I started Gliclazide this morning , before breakfast my BG was 11, 2 hours later it was 18. Before lunch it was down to 8 , take it that’s the Gliclazide that’s done that . If my pancreas is unable to produce insulin (type 1) would the Gliclazide of reduced my BG ?I really think you need to be following up with your GP about the possibility of being LADA or T1 @JueB
If your pancreas isn’t producing much insulin any more, cutting carbs just isn’t going to be enough. And your weight loss and ketones should be red flags for further investigation.
