Atypical diabetes mellitus: time for a consensus? Pediatr Diabetes 2000 Dec;1(4):226-32 PMID: 15016220

Pubmed ID



A subgroup of diabetic patients presents with features typical of type 1 diabetes, but over months to years has variable insulin requirements and develops features of type 2 diabetes. This subgroup is referred to as atypical diabetes mellitus (ADM). Over a span of 50 yr, reports on disease epidemiology, clinical characteristics, and metabolic/genetic features of the entity now referred to as ADM remain conflicted. This article reviews the available literature on ADM, proposes atypical diabetes mellitus syndrome (ADMS) as an encompassing nomenclature, and recommends expansive criteria for disease definition pending the release of a consensus recommendation by a panel of experts.
