Abstract: Not all adults presenting with diabetes mellitus have type 2. NPs must become familiar with atypical presentations of type 1 and type 2 diabetes mellitus, especially in light of the current endocrinologist shortage. Two case studies illustrate variations of adult-onset diabetes along with discussion and diagnostic clues.
