Back to Ask the Diabetes Team LADA and MODY

LADA and MODY from 2005

  1. An endocrinologist diagnosed my daughter as pre-diabetic for type 1 or MODY as a result of antibody testing. What do you think she could have? (26 Dec 2005)
  2. My daughter was diganosed with type 1. Tests were negative for antibodies and showed a functioning pancreas. What type of diabetes does she have? (18 Nov 2005)
  3. My son has variable blood sugar and insulin levels. The endocrinologist suspects MODY. How can we determine what he has? (13 Nov 2005)
  4. I was diagnosed with type 2, but, I am not obese and have had very high blood sugars and other symptoms of type 1. Should I be on insulin? Could I have MODY? (5 Nov 2005)
  5. My daughter was diagnosed with diabetes, but she is asymptomatic and has no urine ketones. Could she have MODY? Should she start insulin soon? (7 Oct 2005)
  6. My daughter was diagnosed with MODY last August. Her A1c has gone up. Is she better off taking Glucophage or insulin? Is Glucophage safe for a child? (17 Aug 2005)
  7. Based on my blood work, can you tell what type of diabetes I might have? Do I need to be on insulin? (17 Aug 2005)
  8. Diagnosed with pre-diabetes, my daughter was re-diagnosed with type 1 and started on insulin. Is she type 1? Is insulin the correct course of action? (2 Aug 2005)
  9. With low C-Peptide and insulin levels, I was diagnosed type 1, but I was GAD antibody negative. With a strong genetic factor, could I have MODY? (13 Jun 2005)
  10. While the pediatrician thinks my son has type 1, her educator suspects he has MODY. Is there a test for this? What do you think? (7 Jun 2005)
  11. My doctor thinks I have MODY because of family history and negative antibodies. He says I will have to take insulin for life. What kind of diabetes do I have? (10 Apr 2005)
  12. Could my daughter have type 1 or MODY, as suggested by the endocrinologist? Where can she get genetic testing to see if she is at risk for type 1 due to kidney damage? (20 Mar 2005)
  13. Three years ago, I was diagnosed with MODY. After a month, I was able to stop taking insulin. Is it possible I'm still in my honeymoon? (23 Feb 2005)
  14. My daughter has MODY and takes metformin HCL. Can she become type 1? (20 Feb 2005)
  15. An endocrinologist says I have type 1 despite being antibody negative and having low insulin levels. What type of diabetes do I have? (19 Feb 2005)
  16. Is it possible for MODY to progress into type 1 diabetes instead of type 2? (9 Feb 2005)
  17. Are people with LADA as likely to have ketones at high blood sugars as someone with the traditional form of type 1? (4 Feb 2005)
  18. Tests show I'm GAD antibody positive and below the line on insulin production so I am LADA. Is this a correct interpretation of the results? (30 Jan 2005)
  19. Our adult son has type 1. His doctor has him on Glucophage, too. Isn't this for people with type 2? Will it harm him? What about lactic acid build-up? (16 Jan 2005)
