I am compiling a list of well known people with adult onset Type 1 diabetes/LADA, who were either incorrectly diagnosed as Type 2 initially or correctly diagnosed as having Type 1. People with adult-onset Type 1 diabetes who initially were misdiagnosed as having Type 2 diabetes, strictly due to age not etiology: Amy Tenderich (diabetesmine.com), Manny Hernandez (founder of TuDiabetes.org), professional surfer Rob Blase, prolific diabetes author June Biermann, and actress Elizabeth Perkins. People who were correctly diagnosed as adults include Mary Tyler Moore (33), Gary Hall Jr. (24), former acting US Surgeon General Ken Moritsugu (49), and pro football player Jay Cutler (25).
Can anyone add to this list? Thank you!
