How Do We Better Understand Developing Diseases from Diabetes?

Read Transcript

That would be very helpful for us, and we're doing this, and other people are doing these studies, to understand a little bit more about the genome of these individuals, because it's probably not going to be a single 'Aha' moment with mutation in one gene, but there will be variations that come together that probably protect these individuals, and we would like to look and see if we look at those individuals and compare them to those who develop heart disease with only a modest increase, in obesity or a diet or insulin resistance in diabetes rapidly with obesity that we would compare those.

So that might be an opportunity for the genomic approach.
