Early Intervention with Insulin Does Not Slow Type 1--Relevant to LADA?

Page changed: LADA

Added citation to Medpage today discussion of new Type 1 studies that found that intervening early with insulin did not prevent the development of Type 1 diabetes in children with serious genetic risk factors. This raises the question of whether early intervention with insulin in LADA can slow the progress of this form of adult onset autoimmune diabetes, though it does not provide any reason NOT to start insulin early.
