Diabetes at the crossroads: relevance of disease classification to pathophysiology and treatment
TLDR
The evidence is discussed that autoimmune type 1 diabetes has a broad clinical phenotype with diverse therapeutic options, while the term non-autoimmune type 2 diabetes obscures the optimal management strategy because it encompasses substantial heterogeneity.
Etiology and Pathogenesis of Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults (LADA) Compared to Type 2 Diabetes
TLDR
Data from the limited number of studies on lifestyle factors available indicate that LADA may share several environmental risk factors with type 2 diabetes including overweight, physical inactivity, alcohol consumption (protective) and smoking, suggesting that onset of LADA, similar to type 1 diabetes, to some extent could be prevented or postponed by lifestyle modification such as weight reduction and increased physical activity.

TLDR
This review summarizes the updated classification of DM, including more rarer categories and their associated renal manifestations that need to be considered in patients who present with atypical features.
The Dynamic Origins of Type 1 Diabetes
TLDR
The TrialNet study of subjects with a single diabetes-associated autoantibody at screening is Leveraged in this issue of Diabetes Care to explore factors determining progression to multipleAutoantibodies and, subsequently, the pathogenesis of T1D.
A new classification of diabetes mellitus – current approaches and challenges
TLDR
The evolution of the World Health Organization (WHO) classification of diabetes is presented, with a focus on newly introduced categories – hybrid forms of diabetes and unclassified diabetes, and a novel approach tophenotyping diabetes in adults based on six variables.

Subtypes of Type 2 Diabetes Determined From Clinical Parameters
TLDR
Six clinical parameters were used to cluster adult-onset diabetes patients into five subtypes and it is believed that subclassification using these highly relevant parameters could provide a framework for personalized medicine in diabetes.
Interplay between birthweight, family history, obesity, and genes in the development of latent autoimmune diabetes in adults (LADA) and type 2 diabetes
TLDR
Results from this thesis indicate that LADA is associated with risk factors linked to insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes while genetic susceptibility is linked foremost to genes associated with autoimmunity and type 1 diabetes.

Genetic Similarities Between Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults, Type 1 Diabetes, and Type 2 Diabetes
TLDR
LADA shares genetic features with both type 1 (HLA, INS VNTR, and PTPN22) and type 2 (TCF7L2) diabetes, which justifies considering LADA as an admixture of the two major types of diabetes.
Genetics of diabetes – Are we missing the genes or the disease?
Is latent autoimmune diabetes in adults distinct from type 1 diabetes or just type 1 diabetes at an older age?
TLDR
The immunological and metabolic differences between type 1, type 1.5, and classic type 2 diabetic patients are investigated to suggest at least partially distinct disease processes.
Genetic Heterogeneity in Latent Autoimmune Diabetes Is Linked to Various Degrees of Autoimmune Activity
TLDR
Genetic heterogeneity in LADA is linked to various degrees of autoimmune activity and may be partly distinct from both type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
Clinical review: Type 1 diabetes and latent autoimmune diabetes in adults: one end of the rainbow.
TLDR
Evidence is presented that LADA represents one end of a rainbow encompassing type 1 diabetes, andLimiting loss of endogenous insulin secretion using immunomodulation could be valuable, not only for LADA but also for type 1 Diabetes.
Metabolic characteristics of autoimmune diabetes mellitus in adults
TLDR
It seems justified to consider autoimmune diabetes in adults as a subgroup of diabetes developing in adult age because patients who develop autoimmune diabetes during adulthood share the defects in hepatic glucose production and in non-oxidative glucose metabolism with both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes.
Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults Differs Genetically From Classical Type 1 Diabetes Diagnosed After the Age of 35 Years
TLDR
LADA patients differed genetically and phenotypically from both T1D>35y and type 2 diabetic patients in a manner dependent on GADA levels, but even the highest quartile differed from type 1 diabetes.
Clinical implications of a molecular genetic classification of monogenic β-cell diabetes
TLDR
It is proposed that the old clinical classifications of maturity-onset diabetes of the young and neonatal diabetes are obsolete and that specific genetic etiologies should be sought in four broad clinical situations because of their specific treatment implications.
Heterogeneity of Patients With Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults: Linkage to Autoimmunity Is Apparent Only in Those With Perceived Need for Insulin Treatment
TLDR
The need for insulin treatment in LADA is linked to the degree of autoimmunity and β-cell failure,Subjects with the diagnosis of latent autoimmune diabetes in adults (LADA) are more prone to need insulin treatment than those with type 2 diabetes, but not all patients with LADA develop the need forulin treatment, indicating the heterogeneity of LADA.
Clinical risk factors, DNA variants, and the development of type 2 diabetes.
TLDR
Variants in 11 genes were significantly associated with the risk of type 2 diabetes independently of clinical risk factors; variants in 8 of these genes were associated with impaired beta-cell function.
