Most people are familiar with type 1 and type 2 diabetes, and most people who visit Children with Diabetes have or care for someone with type 1 diabetes. There are other kinds of diabetes however, including a class referred to as "monogenic," meaning that they are caused by a single gene mutation. For some kinds of monogenic diabetes, oral medication, rather than insulin, is used.

If you or your child were diagnosed at a very young age, and there is a family history of type 1 diabetes, you might want to ask your diabetes team about being screened for monogenic diabetes. You can learn more by visiting the resources listed below.
