Type 2 Diabetes Gene Predisposes Children to Obesity
Posted: Sunday, January 03, 2010
Pediatric researchers have found that a gene already implicated in the development of Type 2 diabetes in adults also raises the risk of being overweight during childhood. The finding sheds light on the genetic origins of diabetes and may present an avenue for developing drugs to counteract the disease, which has been on the upswing in childhood and adolescence.
