This is the story of me and my LADA. No, not the car: LADA is “Latent Autoimmune Diabetes of Adults”. It isn’t very well known. Sometimes it’s called Type 1.5, or adult-onset Type 1. It’s something that people need to be more aware of, because a lot of people diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, actually are suffering from LADA. Which is unfortunate, because the treatment is different, and the right treatment might make a real difference if you’re diagnosed with LADA early enough. I was very lucky (or maybe just pushy), but I was diagnosed with LADA five years ago, and my condition is still stable.
