OBJECTIVE To explore the predictive value and influence of islet cell antibody (ICA) and glutamic acid decarboxylase antibody (GAD-Ab) for beta cell function in latent autoimmune diabetes in adults (LADA) patients. METHODS Fifty-six patients with initially diagnosed type 2 diabetes (including 10 cases of GAD-Ab-positive alone, 14 ICA-positive alone, 7 GAD-Ab and ICA-positive and 25 GAD-Ab and ICA negative) were followed up every 6 months (except the 2nd year) until the 5th year. Their fasting… CONTINUE READING
