  • What is Monogenic Diabetes?
  • This form of diabetes is rare as it is the result
    of a change in one gene. Therefore, its pretty
    obvious that monogenic diabetes runs from
    generation to generation as its genetically
    inherited. Apart from genetical reasons, poor
    diet, fewer body movements, and overindulging can
    make you most likely to get this disease.
  • Monogenic Diabetes generally has two forms that
    can affect you- NDM i.e. Neonatal diabetes
    mellitus (caused by changes in KCNJ11, ABCC8, or
    INS genes) MODY i.e. Maturity-onset diabetes of
    the young (caused by changes in HNF1A or GCK
    genes). MODY can have mild or negative symptoms,
    which makes its pre-diagnose difficult. If you
    have GCK-MODY, it can be treated by a few dietary
    changes in your food intake with the consultation
    of specialists at University of Chicago medical
    center.

How to Diagnose Monogenic Diabetes?
  • The two forms of monogenic diabetes have
    different symptoms. Some symptoms of NDM are
    laziness, repeated urination, abrupt weight loss,
    sugary or heavy breath, fatigue, and
    unconsciousness. NDM is lifelong diseases and you
    have to live on medicines for the entire life.
    MODY has its own symptoms, which include
    increased sugar level in blood after eight hours
    fasting, weight gain, getting thirsty frequently,
    sluggish healing, and prone to infections.
    Depending on the medical condition, some people
    dont require treatment while some might need
    regular medicine intake to make more insulin in
    the body.
  • So, whenever you found any of the monogenic
    diabetes symptoms, schedule your time with the
    health specialists of Chicago medical center
    where you would be treated to the best.

DNA Analysis
  • As now that you know the monogenic diabetes is
    the result of genetic mutation, the specialist
    would perform the genetic testing. The human body
    has 20,000 to 25,000 protein-cryptogram genes out
    of which only one gene is mutated. Each gene is
    tested for the occurrence or expected to occur
    monogenic on it. Moreover, prenatal testing is
    the monogenic diabetes study performed on unborn
    babies as either of the parents can transfer
    changed gene to the baby. In fact, the specialist
    might suggest you for whole family DNA analysis
    as monogenic diabetes can be transferred to the
    successors as well.
  • Genetic analysis is necessary to treat Type-1 and
    Type-2 diabetes. A regular visit to the doctor
    and whole body checkup would eliminate the
    chances of the situation getting worst.

How is it Cured and Managed at Chicago Medical
center?
  • Well, theres no such specific treatment of
    monogenic diabetes. Depending on the genetic
    mutation, the doctor medicates an explicit
    patient. The doctor can prescribe medicines or
    injection in order to release more insulin.

  • Besides, the doctor can suggest you give up the
    junk and unhealthy food like sweetened cereal,
    flavored drinks, sweet syrupy food products, junk
    food, fruit juice, white bread, rice, and pasta.
    The diabetes care team would analyze your body
    behavior and record all the statistics of
    improvement. This would help you seen the before
    and after effects of the treatment. So, follow
    what expert suggests and live a diabetes-free
    life.

The Bottom Line
  • Knowing what to do when you are detected with
    monogenetic diabetes symptoms can help you fight
    with it. You can ask more about diabetes to your
    doctor so that you get to know what exactly is
    happening inside your body.
