    Hi so when I was born I was diagnosed with a rare from of diabetes called Transient Neonatal Diabetes Mettilus caused by a genetic mutation in my Chromosome 6. However, it meant that I grew out of diabetes at around 4-6 months old. Since then (I am now aged 20) I have occasionally seen a doctor about the condition who assumed I was fine except for occasional hypos. But very recently I have been diagnosed as a diabetic, although it i so early days that I can only say it is suspected Type 1 although the doctors are not sure yet. My question was that although I know this is a very rare disorder are there any others who have had this condition at all who have become diabetic or just any others in general who have had this?
