    Hi. I’m being tested for Mody at the moment. I will join the “group” if I get a positive test back!

    Have six with MODY2 in my family. There is a vibrant MODY community (1000+members) on Facebook if you do a search. Would love to see a subthread here as well.

    Hi all, I'm MODY HNF4A (the rare type apparently) - diagnosed almost 10 years ago. My mum also has it (but only found out that it was MODY when I was diagnosed) and my brother carries the gene. My mum was told she was Type 1 and treated with insulin for 25 years. My brother's daughter was born with hyperinsulinism due to the gene. Lots going on with us! Nice to meet you all. :)

    Hi Alice,

    Nice to meet you.

    I haven't checked into this app in a while.

    I'm Mody 3 as are my mum and 2 sisters.

    I'm treated with insulin as they always thought I was type 1 and after years of using insulin I didn't want to change to tablets.

    My mum and sisters treat using tablets.
