Question from Shreveport, Louisiana, USA:
I am a diabetes educator at a hospital. Do you have any current information about people transitioning between NIDDM and IDDM who are considered as 1.5s?
Type 1.5 diabetes is not a specific diagnosis and not accepted nomenclature. You might find information about people with type 1 diabetes with insulin resistance or you might find information about LADA (late-onset autoimmune diabetes of adulthood). One place you might want to look is the NCBI/PubMed we site.
