Identifying and Treating Monogenic Diabetes

This webinar provides an update on monogenic diabetes, highlighting how to identify possible cases and the impact of a genetic diagnosis. Genes causing both maturity onset diabetes of the young (MODY) and neonatal diabetes will be discussed. Simple and inexpensive steps which can be taken to aid differential diagnosis will be described. Case studies will be used to highlight the specific characteristics associated with different types of monogenic diabetes, ensuring the appropriate tests are recommended, enabling accurate diagnosis and most appropriate treatment. Ensuing treatment changes, implications for other family members and the emotional impact of a ‘new genetic diagnosis’ and the consequence of stopping insulin injections, even after many years on this treatment, will be discussed.
