What is type 1.5 diabetes, or Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults?
It is a type of diabetes that “straddles” types one and two diabetes.
This means that certain aspects are more like type one, whereas other characteristics are more like type two – hence the name.
However, currently it’s not classified as a separate type of diabetes with medical research ongoing into what exactly “type 1.5” diabetes is.
What are the symptoms?
According to diabetes.org.uk, the symptoms are:
- Peeing often
- Feeling very thirsty
- Feeling extremely tired
- Losing weight
However, the symptoms tend to come on slower than they do with type one diabetes – over weeks, instead of months.
