Severe Autoimmune Diabetes (SAID) - symptoms and how to test
Young people are most likely to be diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. In the past, this condition was referred to as type 1 diabetes because the body's immune system mistakenly assaults the beta cells, which prevents insulin production. Most persons with SAID are diagnosed with the condition at a young age. They often have a low body mass index (BMI), insulin insufficiency, poor regulation of blood glucose levels, and antibodies against glutamate decarboxylase (GADA).
