Genetics of Diabetes

Several factors have to come together for a person to develop type 2 diabetes. Elements like nutrition and exercise are extremely important. However, type 2 diabetes also has a strong genetic component. Diabetes constitutes a major public health problem. Although substantial progress has been made in defining the genetic risk for specific subtypes of diabetes

The burden of diabetes is much higher for racial/ethnic minorities than for whites. Minorities have a higher prevalence of diabetes than whites, and some minorities have higher rates of diabetes-related complications and death. Research results help in understanding these disparities and ways to reduce them.

Diabetes, the sixth leading cause of death in the United States, is a chronic disease characterized by persistent hyperglycemia (high blood glucose levels). Significant advances have been made in recent years in relation to the pathogenesis of T2DM. This has significantly improved our knowledge of one of the most serious health threats in the world, allowing identification of genes and pathways involved in the development and progression of the disease. It has recently become possible to acquire molecular and genetic level information from an individual.
