Sweet Silent Killer Version 1.5

Are versions and variants applicable only to software and other products?? The answer is a big NO. A new version of diabetes, diabetes type 1.5, is in Chennai now. It is also called LADA (Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults). Earlier, there were only two types of diabetes; type 1 and type 2. Type 1 diabetes is mostly seen in children and Type 2 diabetes is seen in adults over 30 years of age. Now what is so special in diabetes Type 1.5? Type 1.5 affects both the children as well as adults. Doctors say that the onset is very mild unlike Type 1 diabetes at the earlier stages and it afflicts nearly 15% of the diabetics. So, diabetics…. have a close watch on your health. Even some people, who haven’t had a history of diabetes (type 1 or 2), have been afflicted by diabetes type 1.5. If you have excessive thirst or weight loss, it is better to consult a doctor. After all diabetes is sweet urine but the complications are devastating. That is why it is called as the “Silent Killer.”
