Although type 2 is the most frequent type of diabetes around the world, type 1 remains the main form of diabetes in childhood. Inherited diabetes syndromes, such as maturity-onset diabetes of youth (MODY), have also received attention in recent years as more information has become available on their pathophysiology and optimal management. This chapter summarizes available information on the prevalence and incidence of non-type 2 diabetes and its risk factors. It includes discussion of type 1 diabetes and diabetes that is (1) related to genetic defects of β-cell function such as MODY and neonatal diabetes, (2) associated with pancreatic disease such as cystic fibrosis-related diabetes (CFRD), (3) caused by drugs and toxins, and (4) related to certain common genetic syndromes such as Down's syndrome.

Keywords:   type 1 diabetes, risk factors, MODY, neonatal diabetes, pancreatic disease, genetic syndromes
