It is the period during which there are still enough beta cells alive 
to produce some insulin, but not enough to keep you from DKA or other 
problems normally seen when a person is dx'd.

i.e. there is a little insulin made, but not enough. Usually takes a 
few months to a year after diagnosis for the immune system to kill 
all the beta cells.
