Study group discussion: Type 3 diabetes and type 1.5 diabetes

Guys, I heard of another cool thing!
Type 3 diabetes!

Which is?

Alzheimers disease, apparently.

How?

Something related to IGF.. AD represents a form of diabetes mellitus that selectively afflicts the brain.

Woah.

Wow.

There is also diabetes type 1.5

What is that?

Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults (LADA)

Interesting.

Can LADA also have a polyneuropathy a symptom like DM? As the link says it a Diabetes cause of Autoimmune reaction?

I would imagine every type of diabetes has the potential to cause secondary effects such as neuropathy.

I'd never heard of Alzheimers as diabetes though.

As an aside other forms of diabetes I've heard of are gestational diabetes and diabetes secondary to pharmaceuticals.

What's MODY and how is it different from LADA? 

LADA is autoimmune whereas MODY seems to be related to chromosomal mutations.
