More than 500 million people worldwide suffer from type 2 diabetes. Early identification of individuals at risk for type 2 diabetes enables prevention and promotes a healthy lifestyle. This high throughput genotyping tool for type 2 diabetes risk assessment is an analysis of variants in 16 genes. A quick and easy, at-home test kit analyzes genetic variants, or polymorphisms, associated with type 2 diabetes, taking into account multi-ethnic associations.
Reasons for use:
Identification of genetic variants that are associated with increasing an individual’s risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
Additional information based on the identification of variants that are associated with an increase likelihood/risks for developing type 2 diabetes to provide guidance on how implementation and adherence to behavior intervention measures may lower the risks of developing type 2 diabetes: Diets, physical exercise, and lifestyle changes.
