|Journey to a Miracle|
57 minutes + additional information
The movie, which is about an hour long, is a real tear jerker, mostly focused on the stories of a small group of children diagnosed with MODY (with MODY-3 in particular) who had previously been given a T1 diagnosis. Once diagnosed with MODY-3 the children were able to start on sulfonylureas and moved off of insulin. That is the miracle.
While my heart went out to the children and their stories I felt a bit dismayed at the message of the movie that you can just "cure" MODY by taking a little pill. The movie portrayed insulin as a terrible life long burden with horrendous consequences. And then suggested that taking this little pill would "cure" the patients of diabetes and that they wouldn't have any further consequences from MODY. I'm not so sure of the validity of that message.
