Neonatal Diabetes

 Neonatal diabetes is an uncommon type of diabetes that is normally analyzed in youngsters under a half year of age. There are two main categories of neonatal diabetes:

•           Transient Neonatal Diabetes Mellitus

•           Permanent Neonatal Diabetes Mellitus

Transient neonatal diabetes is so termed because it usually disappears within a year of birth but can come back again typically during adolescence.

Permanent neonatal diabetes, once analysed, remains for the rest of life.

Neonatal diabetes mellitus (NDM) is a monogenic type of diabetes. Babies with Neonatal diabetes mellitus don't produce enough Insulin, prompting an expansion in blood glucose. Symptoms of Neonatal diabetes mellitus  incorporate frequent urination, and lack of hydration. NDM can be analysed by discovering elevated levels of glucose in blood or urine. Neonatal diabetes is treatable and may or may not require insulin so a diagnosis by genetic testing is recommended.
