My endo says that she ran the correct test for islet antibodies, but I don’t think so. The test was to be for islet cell cytoplasmic antibodies. When I went to the independent lab, they said that was vague and called the dr to clarify. The test that she had the lab run was Antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies, which, according to the lab test online site is:
“To help detect, diagnose, and sometimes monitor certain forms of systemic vasculitis” or “To help distinguish between Crohn disease and ulcerative colitis.”
I asked her (in a vague, unassuming, non- threatening way) if that was the test for the islet cell cytoplasmic antibodies, and she said yes, but I can’t find any correlation between the two tests and I can’t find any info showing that the Antineutrophil test directly relates to LADA antibodies.
