People with MODY except for MODY 2 are at a risk of developing all the complications that occur in people with type 1 or type 2 diabetes.
Prognosis of MODY
MODY 2 accounts for approximately 10-65% of MODY and most cases are diagnosed in childhood or pregnancy. Prognosis of MODY 2 is good as most cases of MODY 2 have mild diabetes and rarely develop complications. Most patients with MODY 2 do not require any medication and can be treated with meal planning alone.
Prognosis of people with other forms of MODY is not very good. They can develop all the complications of MODY such as heart disease, kidney failure, neuropathy and blindness that occur in people with type 2 diabetes. All long-term complications of MODY can be prevented or delayed by keeping blood sugar as normal as possible.
Complications of MODY
All these complications in MODY like other types of diabetes can be prevented or delayed by keeping blood sugar close to normal. Your doctor can advise you regarding measures that can help to prevent long term complications and improve your prognosis.
