@annette I think you could still technically have the same problems as a type 2 (i.e develop resistance to insulin because of weight) but as you would be monitoring your sugars and compensating for raised levels, the only symptom you would have would be injecting more insulin. When I lost some weight recently I had to reduce my insulin (it had less work to do!), which suggests that insulin resistance is a factor for T1s too (obviously I’m ignoring all the other causes of T2). I doubt you would be officially be diagnosed as T2 though- T1 wins!
