It's been a rollercoaster for decades.
I was misdiagnosed with type 1 diabetes simply cause I was 15 when I was first diagnosed, despite all my symptoms being like type 2. Apparently, despite the possibility, it didn't occur to anyone that MODY (maturity onset diabetes of the young) existed much less that that was what it turned out I actually had.
Add the that that when I was finally diagnosed type 2 after diagnosis, they had me on Avandia for a little over a decade, which later had to be removed from the market when it was determined to cause heart disease from long-term use. While that never happened to me, it certainly still crosses my mind and enters into my more hypochondriac moments that perhaps
my heart is damaged from a good dozen years of Avandia. It was also implicated in causing damage to the eyes, which may explain some of my weird blindspots which somehow I can see in the dark.
Not to mention numerous timed where I did too much excersize and had a low blood sugar and had to consume enough sugar to negate the calories burned. Or those times where I accidentally took too much glimeperide and had multiple low blood sugar attacks in a row.
