The article describes the case of a 23-year-old woman who consulted her doctor because of sore throat, lethargy and flu-like symptoms and who was diagnosed with subclinical type 1 diabetes after taking an oral glucose tolerance test. She has been taking repaglinide with meals and has good glycemic control. Young persons who are islet cell antibody-positive, have a first-degree kin with type 1 diabetes and have high-risk HLA haplotypes will eventually develop diabetes that requires insulin.
