The incidence and prevalence of diabetes have doubled over the past two decades (), and there are now about 30 million adults in the U.S. living with this condition, 95% of whom have type 2 diabetes ().Genome-wide association (GWA) studies test hundreds of thousands or even millions of common (minor allele Cited by: Genetics of Diabetes Mellitus | Genetics of Diabetes Mellitus is intended to be a resource for both researchers in the field as well as endocrinologists, diabetologists, and geneticists who seek to learn more about this rapidly changing and important field.

Genetics play a strong role in the chances of developing both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Other factors include environment and lifestyle. Diabetes is an increasingly common chronic condition affecting millions of people in the UK alone.

If you would like to learn more about the genetics of all forms of diabetes, the National Institutes of Health has published The Genetic Landscape of Diabetes. This free online book provides an overview of the current knowledge about the genetics of type 1 and type 2 diabetes, as well other less common forms of diabetes.

The book is written for healthcare professionals and for people with diabetes interested in learning more about the disease. Optimistically, the publication of this work on the genetics of diabetes will help to achieve this aim and to establish the concept of genetic heterogeneity of diabetes mellitus.

The editors are grateful to Springer-Verlag, Heidelberg, for the prompt publication of these proceedings and to the Farbwerke Hoechst AG, Frankfurt (M), for their contribution to the printing : Paperback. Genetics of Diabetes Mellitus is intended to be a resource for both researchers in the field as well as endocrinologists, diabetologists, and geneticists who seek to learn more about this rapidly changing and important field.

The text contains chapters from experts in the area who review aspects of the genetics of both type 1 and 2 diabetes mellitus as well as various syndromic forms of diabetes.4/4(1). "The Genetic Landscape of Diabetes" introduces the reader to what diabetes is—from its discovery thousands of years ago to our modern-day understanding of how this disease, characterized by high blood sugar, develops.

The first chapter provides calculators. About this book On February 21an International Workshop on the "Genetics of Diabetes Mellitus" was held in Göttingen, West-Germany. This workshop had been organized hy the Department of Medicine, University of Göttingen, and was generously sponsored by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft.

This free online book provides an overview of the current knowledge about the genetics of type 1 and type 2 diabetes, as well other less common forms of diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is addressed in chapters exploring genetic determinants that affect the autoimmune process characteristic of type 1 diabetes, the role of the insulin gene in the pathogenesis of type 1 diabetes and additional genes that may impact upon the risk of type 1 diabetes.

One of the effects of diabetes is the presence of glucose in the urine (glucosuria). Ancient Hindu writings, many thousands of years old, document how black ants and flies were attracted to the urine of diabetics. The Indian physician Sushruta in B.C. described the sweet taste of urine from affected individuals, Cited by:   The role of genetics in type 2 diabetes.

Type 2 diabetes is caused by both genetic and environmental factors. Scientists have linked several gene mutations to a higher diabetes risk.

Not everyone who carries a mutation will get diabetes. However, many people with diabetes do have one or more of these mutations. Type 1 diabetes is a disorder characterized by abnormally high blood sugar levels.

In this form of diabetes, specialized cells in the pancreas called beta cells stop producing insulin. Insulin controls how much glucose (a type of sugar) is passed from the blood into cells for conversion to energy.

• Genetics has delivered – we have learnt more about the causes of diabetes during the past 5 than during the past 30 years, thanks to by: The Genetics of Diabetes Mellitus by J. Edwards,available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide.

Diabetes Genetics & Genomics Genetic mechanisms underlying type 1 and type 2 diabetes and how genetic and epigenetic variation influences the metabolism of therapeutics. The Diabetes Genetics and Genomics program advances research to identify the genes and intergenic regions that predispose to or protect from developing type 1 or type 2 diabetes.

Type 2 diabetes is a disorder characterized by abnormally high blood sugar levels. In this form of diabetes, the body stops using and making insulin properly. Insulin is a hormone produced in the pancreas that helps regulate blood sugar levels.

Specifically, insulin controls how much glucose (a type of sugar) is passed from the blood into cells, where it is used as an energy source. Excerpts from book: Preface "The Genetic Landscape of Diabetes" is a guide to the variations in our DNA that may influence our risk of developing diabetes.

It is well known that a lifestyle of inactivity and excessive food intake plays an important part in diabetes risk. But diabetes is a genetic disease as well as a disease of lifestyle.

Over three editions the Textbook of Diabetes has built a reputation as a book that is extremely well-organized and easy to navigate, with exceptional illustrations and an excellent blend of clinical and scientific content.
