Abstract
Diabetes mellitus is a lifelong, incapacitating disease affecting multiple organs. Presently, type 2 diabetes (T2D) can neither be prevented nor cured and the disease is associated with devastating chronic complications. These complications impose an immense burden on the quality of life of patients and account for about 12% of direct health care costs in Europe. Genetic analysis will increase our understanding of this heterogeneous disease and may help offer more personalized treatment.
