Since T1D is increasingly recognized as a heterogeneous disorder, we sought to determine whether different diagnostic criteria could identify individuals with a distinct profile of markers typical for T1D.
We studied autoantibody positive (Ab+) TrialNet Pathway to Prevention participants. Markers that typically cluster in individuals diagnosed with T1D were compared between groups defined by oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) 2-hour glucose ≥200 mg/dl (2hrglu≥200), which is an ADA standard diagnostic criterion, and Index60≥2.00 (Ind60≥2.00; based on fasting C-peptide [C-pep] and OGTT 60-minute C-pep and 60-minute glucose), which has previously shown potential utility as a diagnostic criterion for T1D. Three groups were compared: (A) 2hrglu≥200 Only (Ind60 <2.00), (B) Ind60≥2.00 Only (2hrglu <200), and (C) Both Ind60≥200 and 2hrglu≥2.00.
Participants in the Ind60≥2.00-Only or Ind60≥2.00 and 2hrglu≥200 groups were younger, had lower 30-0 minute C-pep and AUC C-pep, and had higher percentages of mIAA and multiple Ab+ compared with those in the 2-hrglu≥200 Only group (Table).
