Test that distinguishes MODY from Type 1

This presentation on an outpatient test that distinguishes between MODY and Type 1 diabetes was presented at the EASD 47th Annual Meeting. There is lots of information in the article that is not up-to-date or doesn’t take into account that MODY is so often misdiagnosed.

Yes, but people don’t get misdiagnosed as T1, they get misdiagnosed as T2. After reading that article, I’m not sure this test is useful. It measure remaining insulin production and while it may distinguish MODY from T1, it is unlikely to be useful in separating MODY from T2.
