An animated short film based on a study by Diabetes Research and Wellness Foundation (DRWF) discusses the importance of diabetes classification. The video details the differences between Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, and MODY (maturity onset diabetes of the young). The importance of diabetes classification and the risk of being misdiagnosed are covered – particularly among young people with diabetes and people from black and minority ethnic groups (BAME). The film is based on the DRWF-funded MY DIABETES study by Dr Shivani Misra, Consultant in Metabolic Medicine and Honorary Research Fellow at Imperial College London.
