Genetic susceptibility modifies age at onset in autoimmune diabetes. The most important genetic susceptibility to Type 1 diabetes and LADA is in the HLA region. Because of the age-related genetic factors, LADA can not be distinguished from classic Type 1 diabetes by genetics. Non-genetic factors contribute much to Type 1 diabetes… CONTINUE READING
