I was diaganosed at 16 yrs old with Diabetes. After many years of taking Insulin 3 times a day I looked into a Pancreas Transplant. Went to Maryland, got on the transplant list. A couple weeks later the Hospital called and said that I was misdiagnosed. My Pancreas made a sufficient amount of Insulin. So why do I have diabetes??? They said that my body is Insulin Resistant from all the years of putting Insulin into my body. It started out really small doses, just a couple of units and now my shots are 70 units per shot/3 times a day. Knowing now what I know about Diabetes and testing, the doctor should of ran some sort of tests to prove I was diabetic, he didn't he just asked me to urinate in a cup because he thought I was pregnant, came back and said nope, not pregnant but you have diabetes. So now Im stuck with this Chronic Illness. I am 28 years old and I have 4 children. I've discussed my options with my doctors and they said if I could lift the Insulin Resistance I would have a 50/50 shot of not having diabetes. It's considered experimental so of course insurance will not pay for this. It's removing the Insulin and Fat deposits from my body. Does anyone know anything about this. The surgery is just a little over $5,000.00, not an amount I can come up with just like that. But I'm willing to do whatever it takes, I am in pain daily. I have severe neuropathy of my legs and feet. Oncryptosis of my feet, they're dying. I've had a yeast infection for 10 straight years, very uncomfortable. I've lost my eye sight twice and I pass out randomly. Im just tired of living. So anyones help would be appreciated.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
