A random finding of hyperglycaemia in children and adolescents is a good reason for detailed evaluation andfor estimation of the underlying disorder. Hyperglycaemia may be the first sign of an early phase of type 1 diabetesmellitus, of type 2 diabetes mellitus, of a diabetic syndrome or of a subtype of MODY diabetes (Maturity-OnsetDiabetes of theYoung).
