Latent Autoimmune Diabetes
Latent Autoimmune Diabetes is an extremely urgent condition. Like Type 2 Diabetes, people with LADA do represent with insulin resistance. However, the condition is autoimmune, like Type 1. People with Latent Autoimmune carry the exact same complication risk as those with Type 2-stroke, heart attacks and heart disease. Contrary to popular beliefs, some people who have LADA ARE overweight or obese. Furthermore, some people do carry family history of diabetes, regardless of the actual type. Latent Autoimmune usually begins between age 21 to 65, and carries serious issues like any other Diabetes.

Considering the fact some people carrying Latent Autoimmune Diabetes are overweight or obese, weight loss can improve the sensitivity to insulin. Unlike Type 2 diabetes, however, just about all with LADA will need to eventually take insulin (whereas only between 12 and 23 percent of actual Type 2 diabetics do). Latent Autoimmune Diabetes of Adults starts off with its treatment strongly similar to that of T2DM; within 3 to 14 years after diagnosis, however, those who have LADA will have to eventually take insulin. Latent Autoimmune Diabetes can be managed by exercise, weight loss (for some) and a proper diet. This condition has been also called as Type 1.5 (one and a half) Diabetes by other Diabetes specialists. LADA is obviously different from Type 1 because LADA begins very slowly.
