I'd get another opinion on the t2 diagnosis for a 16 year old. Can she see an endocrinologist ?

Maybe she has LADA? It can present as type 2 but it isn't, I'd get a second opinion 😘

I was diagnosed early at well and they never did the test to see for sure if I was T1 or T2 they just assumed I was T2. Since she is so young and Endo is a great idea! I am sad I waited so long to go

Did a pediatric endocrinologist diagnose her? Did they do a c-peptide test?

Just a little strange for her to be diagnosed t2 at 16

Ask for a test for MODY..... I had the same diagnosis and turns out it wasn't type 2, it was mody instead
