Dear Monogenic Diabetes Registry Community,

We hope you and your families are doing well. As we look forward to spring/summer, we wanted to reach out and thank you for your continued participation in the Monogenic Diabetes Registry. Whether it’s completing an annual follow-up survey, updating your contact information, or referring other family members with diabetes, your involvement is truly the fuel for our studies.


We hope you enjoy this issue of the Monogenic Diabetes Newsletter.

Monogenic Diabetes Participant Portal


Last summer we launched our new Participant Portal! The Monogenic Diabetes Participant Portal is a convenient way for people to access and complete surveys, view previously completed surveys, and upload documents for the study team to see. If you are interested in learning more about the Portal, you can email our team.

Monogenic Diabetes Website


Our website recently got a brand-new look! These improvements will make it easier for you to view vital information about monogenic diabetes and our current research.

Navigating the Everyday | A Conversation about Living with KNCJ11 AND ABCC8 Related Diabetes


On November 29, 2022 our team hosted a free,virtual event to address mental health and social challenges associated with KCNJ11 and ABCC8-related diabetes. Topics for this event included an overview of how ABCC8 and KCNJ11 variants affect the brain, tools for parents and families, and practical tips for young adults. There was also time for a live Q&A session with our experts. Thank you to all who attended!

These email-based discussion groups are a place for patients/parents and physicians/diabetes providers to discuss various aspects of these conditions.
