Update - I'm still striking out when it comes to finding an endo to perform the antibody tests for Type 1.5 LADA. My rheumatologist suggested I contact my insurance carrier, which I did last week. My representative has been calling a list of diabetic specialists in the area and she's also striking out. Labcorp and Quest will do the tests, but I need a doctor to write up a lab slip. It seems that no one specializes in performing those tests or sees LADA patients.
She says she's not giving up and moving closer to the medical center area--it will be a longer commute for me, but may very well be worth it.
Can anyone recommend an endo for LADA in SE Houston?
