In Adults, Type One Diabetes Often Misdiagnosed as Type Two

febrero 7, 2019

Approximately 26 million Americans have diabetes and the vast majority have a kind called Type Two. But a growing number of adults are being diagnosed with Type One diabetes after initially being misdiagnosed with Type 2. According to Dr. Jennifer Holst, an endocrinologist at the Joslin Diabetes Center of West Penn Allegheny Health System in Pittsburgh, as many as 10 percent of people who develop diabetes as adults may actually have latent form of Type 1 disease. She tells Pittsburgh’s KDKA-TV that an accurate diagnosis is critical to preventing major health problems such as organ failure, cardiovascular disease and blindness.
