Misdiagnosed

I like Kerri Sparling very much. T1 for 25 years, and dx when she was 6. She started her blogsite several years ago. It is called "Six Until Me". It is a great site! The subject here involves T1D's who are misdiagnosed as T2. This blog was written in 2012, but incorrect diagnosing is still happening today. This happens very often when the dx occurs later in life. I have read about T1 being dx for people in their 80s. An organ can fail at any age, for so many reasons. So a pancreas can certainly fail in an older person. Why don't doctors realize this??? Here is Kerri's blog:
