    Thanks for sharing these, Ellen. I particularly appreciated the other presentations specific to GCK MODY. In those presentations they discuss how GCK MODY is not always the benign "mild" diabetes with "no complications" that it's painted to be in many online sources and even in the first video here. As they mention in the GCK-specific videos, there is not enough data yet. While the risk of microvascular complications is thought to be lower, the risk of cardiovascular complications may not be. Also, not everyone with GCK mutation fits the "only a mild fasting hyperglycemia" profile.
