    That is interesting and I would like to hear any other feedback but I think I would go with 250.81 even though I don't feel comforatable that it says "juvenile type" and you are stating "adulthood"

    After doing a little research, I discovered that Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adulthood is not considered to be Type 1 or Type 2 but Type 1.5 Diabetes or Double Diabetes because it has components of both types. I would use 250.80 only because it is unspecified. You may want to google this Disease then query the physician for clarification.
