Thanks for the reply, the first test I took was in Dec and the 2nd test I took was now, isnt that pretty fast for such a drop?
c peptides is very useful for diabetics who rely on diet and tablets as many of these sufferers are actually making more insulin than normal but have become resistant to it and cant make normal use of it
Older diabetes specialists are often unaware of insulin resinstance and make no attempt to deal with it, instead getting the diabetic to inject insulin, when the tablets they prescribe, ie the wrong type, no longer give enough control
metformin is best for insulin resistance, far as I know
my local GP doc refused my request for a c peptides test, saying it was of no importance, so I fired him and went elsewhere

It does take time to come to terms with it but remember that today we are lucky to have the tools, pumps, glucose monitors.. to deal with this, it is difficult in the begining but will your support your husband should make it, just learn as much as you can, your nutritionist knows much more usually than the PCP or the Endo, Good Luck, I am 40, and have had gestational diabestes twice and now I have Lyme Disease that must have stressed my body so diabestes is back!
