Diagnosis and Symptoms


My daughter’s C-peptide has gone up since diagnosis and she was negative for antibodies. Could she have type 2 or MODY?

From: Ismailia, Egypt

My 7-year-old daughter was recently diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Her first fasting C-peptide was 0.7. Three weeks later, her non-fasting C-peptide was 2.04 and she was negative for antibodies. She is thin, weighs 20 kg (44 pounds). Is it possible she has type 2 or MODY?
