Genetics of Diabetes

Genes will show the modest effect on diabetes or a related endophenotype such as insulin resistance or lower metabolic rate. The mutations in the genes or the hereditary effects are carried on to the next generation. The mutations may be like proinsulin conversion defects, insulin gene mutations, insulin receptors mutations and mitochondrial. 

Understanding the role of genetics requires looking at other factors as well. 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 have one or more of these mutations.

  • Proinsulin conversion defects
  • Insulin gene mutations
  • Insulin receptors mutations
  • Mitochondrial DNA mutations
