I’m going to try to keep this supremely simple.
I had the c-pep test and antibody tests done last month. My c-pep came back at .4 (normal range: 1.1 - 5.8) and my GADA came back within the normal range. My islet cell titer came back negative, but my insulin autoantibodies were double the highest number in the normal range indicated by the lab. The test was done after a sixteen hour fast.
Does that sound consistent with a LADA diagnosis? Will a non-fasting c-pep value increase? Could the insulin autoantibodies be caused by the basal insulin I’m injecting?
My next endo appt. is 7 August. I’m sure she’ll cover all this with me, but these are the questions I have, and I’d like to have some input from you guys.
eta: I was diagnosed with diabetes more than ten years ago, and started on insulin over six years ago.
