Could I be type 1/1.5?

Recommended Posts


This 2009 article in Diabetes Care is a LADA tutorial for physicians. It includes a discussion of choices for oral meds. http://care.diabetesjournals.org/content/32/suppl_2/S246.full


The case that LADA is truly intermediate between Type 1 and Type 2 at the genetic level, not an unusual variant of Type 1


Some doctor pointed out one practical difference between LADA and childhood onset Type 1: since LADA emerged much later, the destruction of beta cells hasn't progressed as far, so the patient has more insulin secretion.
