This has brought up a memory of a query I had a long time ago (as a teenager, I think) back when T2s were still considered to be diabetic due to weight – causing their bodies to have to produce more insulin, and hence becoming ‘immune’ to insulin and needing more of it etc- insulin resistant in other words. I was told that I was having to inject more insulin that a non-diabetic produced, due to it being used less efficiently, and it getting ‘lost’ at the injection site. My query then was ‘Does that mean I’ll become T2 as well as T1?’ Didnt really get an answer…
