Monogenic Diabetes.Most diabetes cases, including both Type 1 and Type 2, are polygenic diseases, meaning there is more than one gene contributing to the risk of diabetes. Some very rare forms of diabetes called monogenic diabetes are inherited forms of diabetes caused by single gene mutations. The most common form is maturity onset diabetes of the young, or MODY. Single gene mutations are also the cause of neonatal diabetes, or diabetes that appears in newborns, up to about 6 to 9 months old.
