Six different measurements were used across four separate studies: age at diagnosis, body mass index (BMI), long-term glycaemic (blood sugar) control, the function of insulin-producing cells in the pancreas, insulin resistance, and the presence of specific autoantibodies linked to autoimmune diabetes
Group 1, the severe autoimmune diabetes
, essentially corresponds to Type-1 diabetes and is characterised by onset at young age, poor metabolic control and impaired insulin production.

Further, higher salt intake was also linked with a high risk of developing Latent Autoimmune Diabetes
in Adults (LADA)- a form of Type 1 diabetes in which the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas are destroyed by the body's own immune system.
Promotion of autoimmune diabetes
by cereal diet in the presence or absence of microbes associated with gut immune activation, regulatory imbalance, and altered cathelicidin antimicrobial peptide.
Soft drinks also increased the risk of a less common condition called Latent Autoimmune Diabetes
in Adults (Lada) which shares characteristic of both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes.
Lead scientist Dr Josefin Edwall Lofvenborg said: "In this study we were surprised by the increased risk in developing autoimmune diabetes
by drinking soft drinks.

Latent autoimmune diabetes
in adults (LADA) is a form of type 1 diabetes that occurs in adults, often with a slower course of onset.
