What does IDDM2 mean?

The insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus 2 gene (IDDM2) is a type 1 diabetes susceptibility locus contributed to by the variable number of tandem repeats (VNTR) upstream of the insulin gene (INS).

Is IDDM always type 1?

Insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM), also known as type 1 diabetes, usually starts before 15 years of age, but can occur in adults also.

What is IDDM II?

Chemical compound and disease context of IDDM2 Insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) is characterized by autoimmune destruction of the insulin secreting beta-cells of the pancreas and subsequent disruption of glucose metabolism [14].

What is IDDM and Niddm?

As described in Chapter 5, there are two distinct primary forms of diabetes mellitus: type I, or insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM), and type II, or noninsulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM). This classification replaces the older terminology—juvenile-onset and adult-onset diabetes.

How is IDDM diagnosed?

A blood sample will be taken after an overnight fast. A fasting blood sugar level less than 100 mg/dL (5.6 mmol/L) is normal. A fasting blood sugar level from 100 to 125 mg/dL (5.6 to 6.9 mmol/L) is considered prediabetes. If it’s 126 mg/dL (7 mmol/L) or higher on two separate tests, you have diabetes.

What causes IDDM?

Insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) is caused by destruction of the insulin-secreting beta-cells of the islets of Langerhans. It is proposed that the disease is caused by nongenetic, probably environmental, factors operating in a genetically susceptible host to initiate a destructive immune process.

What is the ICD-10 code for IDDM?
