Answer

These are specific types of diabetes due to other causes, which include monogenic diabetes syndromes, diseases of the exocrine pancreas, and drug- or chemical induced diabetes. Various genetic defects of the beta cell, insulin action, diseases of the exocrine pancreas, endocrinopathies, drugs, chemical agents, infections, immune disorders, and genetic syndromes can cause variable degrees of glucose intolerance, including diabetes.
