If you've been diagnosed by your doctor with diabetes, but do not fit the usual pattern of either type 1 or type 2 diabetes, you may be eligible to join RADIANT.

There is currently little information and resources for atypical diabetes.

RADIANT wants to change this.


We aim to discover and define rare and atypical forms of diabetes that will be used by diabetes researchers, physicians and patients.

Smarter Testing

Most patients with rare forms of diabetes remain undiagnosed and do not receive proper treatment.

Through our research, we want to develop “methods” (the most accurate and efficient tests) to identify individuals with atypical diabetes.

Accurate Diagnosis

Precise genetic diagnosis of diabetes enables targeted therapy, leads to improved quality of life, and aids in diagnosis of diabetes in other family members.

We Need You.

Your participation in RADIANT can help us better understand your diabetes.

This enhanced understanding could lead to improved treatment and management of your health and the health of others.

RADIANT is supported by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK).

RADIANT is a network of universities, hospitals and clinics across the United States dedicated to better understanding atypical diabetes. Our team of academic institutions and scientists collaborate with physicians and healthcare groups to identify people with atypical diabetes and learn more about their health.
