Just wondered if you guys find it frustrating trying to explain MODY to people. I find that most people don't really understand much about diabetes and wouldn't understand the difference between type 1 and 2, so to throw MODY in they will just be even more confused. Also alot of health care professionals don't know about it either and kinda look like they don't believe you when you start explaining it. or just think that I'm a young person with type 2. that can get me pretty cross sometimes, trying to explain that I have a genetic, insulin sensitive form of diabetes, not type 2! Do any of you guys just say you have type 1 or 2 just to make things easier? I do tend to let people think that I have type 1. For example If I'm asked if I have the type that needs insulin injections then i will reply 'yes'.
