Monogenic Diabetes: A Model for Personalized Genetic Medicine

Expiration Date:  3/7/2015

Program Overview

Unlike Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, some rare forms of diabetes result from mutations in a single gene. These types, known as monogenic diabetes, can be easily mistaken for Type 1 diabetes. In this webinar, you'll learn the characteristics of the various forms of monogenic diabetes, such as Maturity-Onset Diabetes of the Young (MODY), Permanent Neonatal Diabetes Mellitus (PNDM), and Transient Neonatal Diabetes (TND). Learn to identify the conditions, diagnosis, and syndromes related to these types to better work with your patients.

Program Goals

The goal of this program is to inform healthcare professionals of the importance of the impact of careful goal-setting on positive behaviors change for patients.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this knowledge-based program, the participant will be able to:

  • Understand the pathophysiological characteristics of monogenic diabetes in its various forms.
  • Identify conditions, diagnosis, and syndromes related to Monogenic diabetes.
