Diagnosis and Symptoms

Question from Israel:

I am 45 years old, I have had diabetes for three years treated with 40-50 units of insulin per day, and my GAD antibody level is 83%, but my islet cell antibodies are negative. Do I have type 1 or type 2 diabetes?

Answer:

I sounds as though you have Late-onset Autoimmune Diabetes of Adulthood (LADA) which is a form of type 1 diabetes.
