The relationship between type 2 diabetes and obesity is well established;however obesity at onset of type 1 diabetes is fairly uncommon. We present a19 year old man who was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes after considerable weight loss following bariatric surgery. This unexpected medical paradox may have led to the delayed recognition of the type of diabetes resulting in decompensation into diabetic ketoacoidosis.
