I saw some chatter on Twitter about LADA awareness (#LADAWeek) earlier this week and decided to dig around to find out more. I was excited to discover that next week, October 18-24, is the first-annual LADA Awareness Week. The week is organized by the Diabetes Hands Foundation and dLife, and aims to increase understanding and reduce misdiagnosis of LADA.
I’m looking forward to seeing what the week has to offer and hope I can help spread the word about LADA. I often talk about how confusing it is to be a diabetes misfit and am all for any effort that strives to increase awareness.
