Type 2 diabetes less well managed in the under 40s, finds audit


Have identified several falsely labelled type 2 DM lately . They were labelled as Type 2 at mid 40s but in fact are falling into the category of latent autoimmune diabetes of adult (LADA) and need insulin instead . Some of them started slightly overweight but were losing weight successfully while HBA1c continued to rise . If any doubt, check anti-GAD antibody and C peptide.
