Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults is hard to cope with. I am speaking purely for myself. It is an invisible illness – call it a ‘condition’ if you like, but it is an unexpected disruption of your energy system, appearing when society may think you are ‘old enough to know better’. Yet in my experience, diabetologists, who are expert enough to know something about it, may be only prepared to categorize either ‘type 1’ or ‘type 2’. It seems type 1.5 did not exist when they went through their medical training.
And it it not even as though you are looking for an excuse for your volatility. You just want to understand: to recover your reliability and healthy social life.
I am posting this thread partly to avoid irritating people who are happy with their type 1 or type 2 diagosis, but also to ask whether diagnosis is an answer or more of a question.
Well done anybody, who has adapted to living with LADA. Please feel free to let us know how it affects you.
