Possible Genetic 'Switches' for Blood Sugar Control Detected

lucose levels.

Upwards of 50 genetic abnormalities believed to have an association with islet-related pancreatic dysfunction were also uncovered.

"These findings represent important strides that were not possible just five years ago, but that are now realized with advances in genome sequencing technologies," Dr. Eric D. Green, NHGRI director, noted in the NIH news release.

"Very exciting" is how Dr. Stuart Weiss, an endocrinologist at New York University Medical Center and a clinical assistant professor at the NYU School of Medicine in New York City, described the current effort.

"It's clearly the future of medicine," he said. "However, the fact of the matter is that all sorts of factors are involved in the development of diabetes, and different people require different treatments. And just when you think that you understand it, another curve comes at you. So it's very difficult to think that we're going to find a magic bullet. And I would think that the clinical applications from any of this are probably years and years away."
