Prediction and diagnosis of autoimmune diabetes
from Clinical Laboratory News
The autoimmune forms of diabetes, which affects 2 to 4 million people, include type 1 diabetes, an estimated 5 percent to 10 percent of those with diabetes, and latent autoimmune diabetes in adults, estimated to be 5 percent to 10 percent of those diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. T1D, previously called insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus or juvenile onset diabetes, occurs when the body's immune system destroys the pancreatic β-cells that produce the hormone insulin involved in blood glucose regulation. To survive, affected individuals must take insulin.
