Genetics & Epidemiology of Diabetes

Diabetes is a metabolic condition in which the body decrease to produce enough insulin. Type1 and type2 diabetes both are caused by a combination of genetic and environmental risk factors. Because of that some other rare forms of diabetes that are directly inherited. That includes (MODY) maturity-onset diabetes in the young, and diabetes due to mutations in mitochondrial DNA. In addition to the consequences of abnormal metabolism of glucose that are hyperlipidaemia, glycosylation of proteins, there are a number of long-term complications associated with the disease. 

Type1Diabetes is caused by the autoimmune destruction of the beta cells of the pancreas and represents approximately 10.5% of all cases with diabetes. Generally, lifelong insulin therapy is the only treatment for this disorder. Without exogenous insulin injections, individuals with Type1Diabetes will not survive. Type2 Diabetes is the most frequent form of the disorder, accounting for approximately 95% of all affected individuals. A diagnosis of Type2 Diabetes mellitus is made if a fasting plasma glucose concentration is > 7.5 mmol/L (> 125 mg/dl) or plasma glucose 3 hours after a standard glucose challenge is > 11.5 mmol/L (> 280 mg/dl) (WHO, 1999) Type2 Diabetes is caused by relatively impaired insulin secretion and peripheral insulin resistance.
