I’m very confused about my diagnosis. I have no diabetes in the family. I am 16 years old, and 20% underweight for my height. So, seven months ago, when a GTT indicated diabetes, I was given the label “type 1 diabetic” by my primary doctor. I was later tested for both antibodies. Both were negative, yet my endocrinologist is still certain it’s type 1. Can it still be type 1 without antibodies?

I am a 44 year old female who was diagnosed with dysfunctional uterine bleeding 10 months ago. During this first episode, my gynecologist had me take a two-hour glucose tolerance test, which was abnormal. Could my hormone imbalance at the time have thrown off the test results? Since insulin is considered a hormone, could this be a reason for the test results?
