Neonatal diabetes mellitus

neonatal diabetes mellitus (NDM) is a monogenic form of diabetes that occurs in the first 6 months of life. It is a rare condition occurring in only one in 100,000 to 500,000 live births. Infants with NDM do not produce enough insulin, leading to an increase in Blood glucose. NDM can be mistaken for the much more common type 1 diabetes, but Type1 diabetesusually occurs later than the first 6 months of life. In about half of those with NDM, the condition is lifelong and is called Permanentneonatal diabetes mellitus(PNDM). In the rest of those with NDM, the condition is Transient and disappears during infancy but can reappear later in life; this type of NDM is called Transient neonatal diabetes mellitus (TNDM).
