What is it?
Quest Diagnostics is the only large commercial lab that offers comprehensive DNA testing for monogenic diabetes, a form of diabetes that is often mistaken for type 1 or type 2.1
The most common form of monogenic diabetes is maturity-onset diabetes of the young (MODY), which represents about 2% of all diabetes cases.2 That means more than 500,000 people in the US alone have MODY; many of them are not even aware of it1,3 and may even be receiving inappropriate treatment.3
Diagnosing MODY is important in order to provide patients with the best treatment possible and to facilitate the diagnosis of MODY in family members.1 Quest Diagnostics is proud to be the leader in MODY testing. We offer a range of MODY tests to help you not only diagnose MODY but also determine the exact form.
