  2. 2. Clinical, Genetic and Metabolic Characterisation of LADA (Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults)

    University dissertation from ÅsaLinda Lethagen Wallenberg Laboratory ing 46, Malmö University Hospital, 20502 Malmö, Sweden

    Author : ÅsaLinda Lethagen; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; metabolic syndrome; insulin sensitivity; insulin secretion; GADabs; glutamic acid decarboxylase autoantibodies; Type 2 diabetes; LADA; Type 1 diabetes; IDDM1; IDDM2; Endocrinology; secreting systems; diabetology; Endokrinologi; sekretion; diabetologi;

    Abstract : Latent autoimmune diabetes in adults (LADA) comprises about 10% of patients initially diagnosed with type 2 diabetes but who are positive for pancreatic islet antibodies, especially to glutamic acid decarboxylase (GADabs). The present studies focused on clinical, genetic and metabolic characterisation of patients with LADA. READ MORE

  3. 3. Immunoregulatory differences between adult onset type 1 diabetes and latent autoimmune diabetes in adults (LADA)

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Magnus Hillman; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Endokrinologi; sekretion; diabetologi; diabetology; secreting systems; Isotype class switch; Endocrinology; LADA; Autoantibodies; Autoimmunity; Type 1 diabetes;

    Abstract : Autoimmune diabetes is characterized by cell mediated autoimmunity against insulin producing beta cells in pancreatic islets. Type 1 diabetes is the major cause of diabetes in children and adolescents and is believed to be mediated by a Thl driven destruction of beta cells. READ MORE

  4. 4. Genetics of diabetic subtypes

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Camilla Cervin; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Endocrinology; secreting systems; diabetology; Endokrinologi; Mutation; Association; Genetics; LADA; Diabetes; MODY; sekretion; diabetologi;

    Abstract : There are two major types of diabetes mellitus, Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) and Type 2 Diabetes (T2D), however a number of subtypes have been defined and classified. Maternally Inherited Diabetes and Deafness (MIDD) and Maturity Onset Diabetes of the Young (MODY) are monogenic forms, whereas Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults (LADA) is thought to be a polygenic subtype similar to T1D.

  5. 5. Diabetes mellitus in Adults - Aspects of Incidence, Autoimmunity and C-peptide

    University dissertation from Medicine (Lund)

    Author : Maria Thunander; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Type 1 diabetes; type 2 diabetes; incidence; epidemiology; c-peptide; classification; antibodies; LADA; insulin; definition; autoimmune diseases; rheumatic antibodies; gastric antibodies; complications;

    Abstract : Type 1 and type 2 diabetes increase worldwide, leading to a heavy burden of disease and its complications. All 1666 adults aged 18-100 years with new onset diabetes in Kronoberg during 3 years were registered, and type of diabetes classified by pancreatic autoantibodies and C-peptide. READ MORE
