Has anyone heard of LADA. I was on the American Diabetes Association website and was reading about it. I think this is something I'll speak to my doctor about on Friday.

When I got diagnosed in 2009, I knew I had it prior to then. I definitely want to know if I have been misdiagnosed.

one of the things Mays said in the other discussion on 1.5 is that some Drs think that there is no 1.5. In their mind, those 1.5s are really only type 1s

Well something has got to be going on if I'm still taking this medication and my numbers are still high. **sighs**

well if you have a question you might have a C reactive protein test done. ~ to see if your pancreas is producing any insulin and how much it might producing if it is. It is generally done to see how much insulin a t 2 excretes from the pancreas. and that would be important to know in your case. But if your pancreas is putting out 0 insulin, it would say that you are effectively T 2 (even though you may not ge Dx'd that way).
