BACKGROUND Genetic determinations are important in type 2 diabetes (T2DM) pathology. We investigated associations between genetic variants of 17 diabetes-related genes/loci, T2DM and diabetic complications in Chinese She subjects. METHODS A comprehensive gene-based association study was conducted using 17 single nucleotide polymorphisms in Chinese She subjects with normal glucose tolerance (n = 1119), impaired glucose regulation (n = 1767), and T2DM (n = 443). We applied major abnormal… CONTINUE READING
