Find out your genetic predisposition to suffering from type 2 diabetes with Diabetes Predict
Diabetes Predict is the genetic test on which the Diabetes Prevent programme by Patia is based. Diabetes Predict is a powerful tool for the evaluation of genetic risk from a simple DNA sample. Diabetes Predict evaluates the genetic predisposition of each person to suffering from type 2 diabetes and may lead to taking measures to prevent it in advance.
Genetics at the service of the people
Over the last decade important studies have been performed on type 2 diabetes which need to be transferred efficiently and with a real benefit to the population. Diabetes Predict has been developed with this aim.
For the creation of Diabetes Predict, Patia has analysed in detail the results of the biggest scientific studies and meta-analysis of the human genome that have been carried out in relation to type 2 diabetes: • The DIAGRAM Consortium • The T2D-GENES Consortium • The SIGMA initiative of the Carlos Slim Foundation, the Broad Institute, associated with the MIT and Harvard University.
These studies include more than 110,000 diabetic and non-diabetic people of different ethnicities: Caucasian European, Amerindian, Asian and African.
In this process, Patia, in collaboration with the scientists and doctors of the SIGMA project, selected the genetic variants associated with the type 2 diabetes that Diabetes Predict analyses.
