Beim „maturity onset diabetes of the young“ (MODY) handelt es sich um eine heterogene Gruppe von monogenetisch vererbten Diabetesformen. Die Verläufe können sehr variabel sein, zum Teil auch lange klinisch unentdeckt bleiben. Eine Abgrenzung zu den sehr viel häufigeren Diabetesformen Typ 1 und Typ 2 ist für die betroffenen Patienten wichtig, da sich sowohl die Therapie als auch die Prognose wesentlich unterscheiden können.
