Insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) or Type I Diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which insulin deficiency is a consequence of immunological destruction of the pancreatic beta cells.  In individuals who are genetically predisposed to IDDM, the immunological attack on the beta cells occurs during an asymptomatic period, which is referred to as the "Prediabetic Phase".  This prediabetic phase usually begins several years before the clinical onset of IDDM.  During this phase, autoantibodies directed against pancreatic islet cell antigens (ICA) and/or insulin (IAA) are detected in the blood of many prediabetic subjects.  The Isletest IAA Elisa kit measures the presence of autoantibodies to insulin (IAA) is evidence of ongoing destruction of beta cells to aid in the diagnosis and management of the autoimmune progression of diabetes.
