In this episode, I speak to Mila who has been living with LADA (which stands for Latent autoimmune diabetes in adults (LADA) is a slow-progressing form of autoimmune diabetes) diabetes since 2020 however Mila was originally diagnosed or misdiagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 2016. Mila is a blogger and known advocate in the diabetes online community and is also known as the Hangry Woman. In our chat we speak about: 

  • coming to terms with not only a new diagnosis but also a misdiagnosis
  • the difference in conversations Mila experienced when she was in a healthcare setting as a person living with type 2 diabetes in comparison to a person living with LADA 
  • culturally appropriate diabetes advice
  • navigating the diabetes world as a black woman
  • making memes with Paul Rudd
