Genetic Discovery Leads to Hope for Type 2 Diabetes Treatments | Diabetes News Hound | January 25, 2010

One of the largest genetic studies in history had uncovered a link between nine genes and Type 2 diabetes, according to a recent article from The Times Online.

The finding may one day lead to new treatments for Type 2 diabetes. The scientists hope that in five to 10 years the genes will help identify which people are prone to developing Type 2 diabetes and that they can take a drug to prevent its development.
