My story - I was diagnosed about 5 years ago after a good hard weekend of high carbs. I went to the doctor displaying all the classic symptoms of early keto-acidosis but the doctor never diagnosed it. I was diagnosed as type 2 because of my age (48 at that time) even though I was at normal weight. I have not had a formal diagnosis of LADA, again because of my age. I controlled my BGs with diet and exercise and used the typical type 2 meds. These meds were not effective and I slowly reduced my intake of carbs to less than 30 grams/day. At that point I asked to use insulin and was put on Novolog to help with the meals. That worked well for awhile but my fasting numbers slowly increased until they were around 120. At that time I asked for Lantus and have been using Lantus at night along with Novolog for my meals.
I have one big question - Is is worthwhile for me to get tested for all the antibodies to assure myself that I am, in fact, LADA? Would the tests show anything after all this time?
