Zinc Transporter 8 Antibody Blood Test
The Zinc Transporter 8 Antibody Blood Test is useful to diagnose autoimmune type 1 diabetes.
Latent autoimmune diabetes (LADA) is a type of diabetes type 1 that develops in adulthood. Typically, it will progress more slowly and therefore is sometimes misdiagnosed as type 2 diabetes.
Symptoms of latent autoimmune diabetes are similar to what one would experience with other types of diabetes:
- excessive thirst and drinking
- excessive urination
- blurred vision
This test will measure diabetes-related autoantibodies. Although these autoantibodies do not induce type 1 diabetes, they do serve as indicators of the body's immune response against its own cells that generate insulin.
