Hi, thanks for your query
There is a 3rd category of diabetes most Drs actually forget exist This is like mixed diabetes, where you can have both type 1 and 2 diabetes existing together. Hence, you might find wieght gain in some type 1 diabetics and some would respond to oral medication and insulin, whereas strictly type 1 would only respod to insulin.
There's no name as such as not officially diagnosed,
How was she diagnosed as type 1?
so no ketones found in her urine?
so they have not actually proved she's type 1 which points more to a mixed picture
But due to her age, you'll expect her to be more type 1 than type 2 as you tend to get this in children, while type 2 more in adults
This puts her at risk of metabolic syndrome in the future which include high blood pressure, and cholesterol.
She's the type that needs to be seen by a professor who specialises in children with diabetes, maybe even privately
Yes they can do remote or face to face, but if you have private then use it, as the care would be much better
