What is MODY syndrome?

  • MODY syndrome: A dominantly inherited form of type II diabetes that occurs in young people (less than 25 years old) and is not insulin-dependent. The diabetes results due to genetic mutations which leads to dysfunctional insulin-producing pancreatic cells. There are 6 different genetic mutations that can cause this type of diabetes.

Ophanet, a consortium of European partners, currently defines a condition rare when it affects 1 person per 2,000. They list MODY syndrome as a "rare disease".
