Hello everybody, I have been told by my endo that I now could have LADA, He did not explain much to me about it as it was a phone appointment and he wants to see me in a fortnight, so I was wondering if anyone who has it can explain a bit to me

You know, it's sad...I went to www.webMD.com to find out about LADA and they had nothing. Zip. Zero. Nada...I was surprised.
So here is a good article I found on it that might help. http://forecast.diabetes.org/magazine/features/other-diabetes-lada-or-type-15

It sounds like a mix of both type 1 and 2 becoming what they call type 1.5. It tends to lean more toward type 1, but there are a lot of studies on it trying to find out why it happens.

Howdy Relly!
I don't have LADA ("type 1.5") But there are several on the boards who do.

In the discussions there are several who identify themselves as LADA/1.5 read them here ~ http://www.diabeticconnect.com/discussions?qu...

You'll have to open each discussion to determine whether it is useful for you, but as I recall there are several who identiy themselves with that type

Blessings to you
