It has been reported that some patients have been misdiagnosed with Mononucleosis , when in fact the correct diagnosis in their specific case was Type 1 Diabetes.
Although type 1 diabetes cannot be cured, treatment is aimed at managing the condition and lead a normal life. Treatments include lifestyle eating changes, monitoring sugar levels constantly and continuously taking insulin as required. Insulin pumps are now easily available and are quite helpful in giving the correct insulin dose to make sure glucose levels are normal. Blood tests to diagnose the condition are glycated haemoglobin test that measure the average blood sugar level in the previous 3 months as well as random and fasting blood sugar tests.
