I would like to hear the reason endo/ diabetes nurse have given to people that they are LADA rather than type 2?I am STILL struggling with this .. I have never been told "Yes u are 100% type 1( lada) and this is why..." My gp registered me for a course. It was for type 2 ,but organiserof the course told me on the phone to go along as it might help me. It was nice to meet other diabetics and there was some stuff relevant to me so I thought I would get something out if it .But basically I was put off the course by the facillitator as she said it would confuse me or others or some sort of thing... This made me a little upset and bothered as I dont know where I fit in... Im not sure also whether I am down as a type 2 ,or 1.. I was initally 'wrongly'diagnosed as type 2!That bothers me because if there were trials or cure for a type 1( I know thats not coming anytime soon...) then I wouldnt be eligible . I think I heard mentioned that there are other antibody tests besides GAD which I showed up negative for. Can I push to get other antibody tests if they exist?
