Although I am a LADA (T1.5) diabetic , I just call myself a T1 to others - it's just easier that way. Saves getting a million questions! I will explain LADA to people if they seem interested in diabetes, but generally they're just confused about it all so I leave it out.
What do you do? Do you fill in forms / talk to friends & family etc about being a 1.5 or do you just say T1, if anything?
