[IPk] What is MODY?



Hi -

Can anyone tell me what MODY is please?

I know it stands for Maturity Onset Diabetes of the Young. I'd always 
assumed this was a version of Type 2 diabetes that young people get 
(teenagers, people in their twenties). I'm now told by Jan Chait that 
it is *not* in fact Type 2 diabetes, but is a different illness 
altogether.

Can anyone shed some light on this for me please?

Thanks -

John
