Abstract

Type 2 and monogenic diabetes are emerging causes of diabetes in youths. Among 1244 Italian patients <18 years of age, 91.9% had type 1, 0.2% type 2, and 4.9% monogenic diabetes. Monogenic diabetes ranks second as a cause of diabetes in Italian youth, while type 2 diabetes appears to be rare.
