Monogenic Diabetes Registry

Monogenic Diabetes Registry

There are two parts to the Monogenic Diabetes Registry – the Neonatal Diabetes Registry and the MODY Registry.

Neonatal Diabetes Registry

Anyone diagnosed with diabetes under 12 months of age, and especially those diagnosed before 6 months of age, is likely to have monogenic neonatal diabetes rather than type 1 diabetes. Their diabetes may be associated with complications not usually found in type 1 diabetes, including learning and developmental problems. They may also respond to treatments other than insulin, including sulfonylureas, which are pills used to treat certain types of diabetes. We have a registry to help diagnose and learn more about people with neonatal diabetes.

If you, your child, or a family member have diabetes diagnosed at or before 12 months of age (even if the diabetes was transient or temporary), learn about the NEONATAL DIABETES REGISTRY.

 

MODY Registry (Maturity Onset Diabetes of the Young)

MODY can be caused by mutations in at least 10 different genes and can occur in childhood or adulthood. It can be misdiagnosed as type 1 or type 2 diabetes, however, clues that someone may actually have MODY-type diabetes include negative autoantibodies tests in someone thought to have type 1 or a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes in someone who is not overweight or has a family with three or more consecutive generations of diabetes. We are interested in identifying people with MODY-type diabetes and following them over time to learn more about each type of MODY.

If you,  your child, or a family member may have a monogenic form of diabetes that was diagnosed after 12 months of age, learn about the MODY REGISTRY.
