Unusual forms of diabetes are not so rare

I have recently learned that unusual forms of diabetes, including Wolfram syndrome, are not so rare.  I am talking about diabetes patients whose manifestations are unusual for type 1 or type 2 diabetes. Significant advances have been made in our understanding of genetic forms diabetes, which accounts for around 1-3% of diabetes cases. These patients should be managed and treated differently. Personalized medicine may start from treating these patients.

Thank you again for reading my blog today. I am hopeful, and feel that something wonderful is going to happen to us today. Stay tuned!
