Diabetes Care, 05/18/2012
Sosenko JM et al. – A Diabetes Prevention Trial–Type 1 Risk Score (DPTRS) threshold of 9.00 identifies individuals who are very highly likely to progress to the conventional diagnosis of type 1 diabetes (T1D) within 2 years and, thus, are essentially in a preclinical diabetic state. The 9.00 threshold is exceeded well before diagnosis, when stimulated C–peptide levels are substantially higher.
