From New Jersey, USA:

Could you please comment on a recent news story about treating neonatal diabetes with sulphonylureas, Breakthrough for diabetic babies?


This is a rare form of diabetes with very specific genetic components. Most of us will not live to see such. International Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Diabetes (ISPAD) members all over the world contributed to the cases with data covering many years of practice. Therefore, it is acceptable to prescribe the drugs for this.
