Love your play, Mary! Glad that DHF Seeds provided some funding.
Hi Mary. I do know about this problem, but watching your play was fun. Cheers!
If you want a fun way to learn about this problem, check out The Sweet Lowdown on YouTube. It's a play based on my experiences being misdiagnosed T2 before learning I was LADA. The Sweet Lowdown premiered this past fall at Broom Street Theater and was funded in part by a grant from DHF Seeds. http://youtu.be/BsJWSKtRO0A
Okay, I know that this is not quite the place to mention this (this being the LADA group), but I just posted a blog about acute-onset Type 1 diabetes in adults. Here is a link to my newest blog. I welcome comments!
These misdiagnoses occur with alarming frequency!!
I just wrote another blog on misdiagnosis of adult-onset Type 1 diabetes, this time in response to a JAMA article. Check it out if you are interested, and I welcome input.
Welcome, Pebbles! I hope you get the pump. I have been on a pump for 15 years, and really appreciate it for so many reasons.
Hi folks! I'm Pebbles from OKC and I've been type 1 since 2007. But I'm not a typical type 1 diabetic, I am overweight, started on pills at first and very insulin sensitive. My official diagnosis is LADA. I'm working with an Endocrinologist so I can qualify for a pump. Thanks for a website like this!
Melitta, I think this is a great idea. From time to time, I'll run into a person that I think is really LADA and will scribble your name on a piece of paper, and tell them to do a search. This is a much better idea. Would you believe my hip-hop teacher recently told me that she was a diabetic, a Type 2. When I started to talk about the connection to Celiac, she exclaimed that *she* was a Celiac. I live in an Irish community in the Chicago area. The stats on the Irish aren't good. I suspect my own brother is not a Type 2, but he can't hear what I am saying.
Hi Everyone! Just wanted to let you know that I just posted a new blog on autoantibody testing for Type 1a/LADA diabetes. I welcome your input on the blog and hope it is useful for people.
