I had phone call today from a diabetic nurse to tell me that when I was in hospital with DKA - six weeks ago - I had a special blood test and the results have just come back that I am Type 1 not Type 2 as they thought and had been treating me for. I must admit I haven't been feeling that great but thought it was due to the fact that I am caring for my sister. I now have to inject myself 5 times a day, as my pancreas is not producing little/any insulin. Has this happened to anyone else and if so, will I have to have 5 injections a day for always, or is it just to start with? I was in such a shock that it had taken so long that I forgot to ask.
