Whether genetic information improves prediction models for diabetes from adolescence into adulthood is unknown. METHODS With the use of data from 1030 participants in the Bogalusa Heart Study aged 12 to 18 followed into middle adulthood, we built Cox models for incident T2D with risk factors assessed in adolescence (demographics, family history, physical examination, and routine… CONTINUE READING
