In addition to Kim below, there are several other Type 1.5s here on DC. Use the search function on this site to the upper right of the page and query "Type 1.5", That should pick up the discussions tagged by 1.5, You could also query "LADA", which is another term by which 1.5 is known: Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults.
