    My friends mom is in the hospital and they say she does not have diabetes but they are giving her insulin and her glucose was elevated and she's had at least one hypo incident while she's been there. They are referring her to a nephrologist for some issues with her kidneys. What do you think could it be Type 1? She is 56yrs old. She has lost weight, been very uncharacteristically moody and has had low energy for almost a year now.

    What do you think?

    If she does not have diabetes, why are they giving her insulin? It could be LADA.
